OBJECTIVES We compared pure molecular diffusion (D), perfusion-related diffusion (D*), perfusion fraction (f) and apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) based on intravoxel incoherent motion (IVIM) theory in patients with nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC). METHODS Sixty-five consecutive patients (48 men) with suspected NPC were examined using a 3.0-T MR(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this meta-analysis was to explore the efficacy of sodium bicarbonate in preventing contrast-induced nephropathy (CIN). METHODS We searched PubMed, Medline and the Cochrane Library from 1 January 2004 to 1 August 2014. The effect estimate was expressed as a pooled OR with 95% CI, using the fixed-effects or random-effects model. (More)
PURPOSE To investigate noninvasive arterial spin-labeling (ASL) and blood oxygen level-dependent imaging (BOLD) sequences for measuring renal hemodynamics and oxygenation in contrast induced acute kidney injury (CIAKI) rat. MATERIALS AND METHODS Thirteen SD rats were randomly grouped into CIAKI group and control group. Both ASL and BOLD sequences were(More)
OBJECTIVES To determine the potential of intravoxel incoherent motion (IVIM) MR imaging for staging of hepatic fibrosis (HF). METHODS We searched PubMed and EMBASE from their inception to 31 July 2015 to select studies reporting IVIM MR imaging and HF staging. We defined F1-2 as non-advanced HF, F3-4 as advanced HF, F0 as normal liver, F1 as very early(More)

Hydration with sodium bicarbonate is one of the strategies to prevent contrast-induced acute kidney injury (CI-AKI). The purpose of this study was to determine how strong is the evidence for sodium bicarbonate to prevent CI-AKI after coronary angiography (CAG) and/or percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI).We conducted PubMed, EMBASE, and CENTRAL databases(More)

Some epidemiologic surveillance studies have recorded adverse drug reactions to radiocontrast agents. We aimed to investigate the incidence and management of acute adverse reactions (AARs) to Ultravist-370 and Isovue-370 in patients who underwent contrast-enhanced computed tomography (CT) scanning.Data from 137,473 patients were analyzed. They had undergone(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the changes in brain regional homogeneity in first-onset major depressive disorders (MDDs) using resting-state functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). METHODS Eighteen patients with first-onset MDDs and twenty gender- and age-matched healthy controls underwent resting-state fMRI scans to compare the regional homogeneities of(More)
BACKGROUND Nephrogenic systemic fibrosis (NSF) is a rare but serious disorder disease affecting patients with advanced renal disease. Although multiple studies have indicated an association between gadolinium-based contrast agents (GBCAs) and NSF, some studies published after 2007 found no association. We therefore performed a meta-analysis to evaluate the(More)
