In order to explore a possible deficit in auditory central neural activity in tinnitus with noise induced hearing loss (NIHL), auditory event related potentials (ERP) and reaction time (RT) were recorded (measures of central processing) from tinnitus patients (N = 12) and hearing and age matched controls (N = 12). Testing procedure included oddball(More)
BACKGROUND Accurate, reproducible, and noninvasive assessment of hip cartilage is clinically relevant and provides a means by which to assess the suitability of candidates for arthroscopic or open surgical procedures and the response to such interventions over time. Given the relatively thin cartilage of the hip and the complex spherical anatomy, however,(More)
Extended high-frequency (HF) audiometry and auditory-nerve brain-stem-evoked responses (ABR) were carried out on two groups of subjects with normal hearing sensitivity. The experimental group comprised 17 subjects with tinnitus, while the control group consisted of age- and sex-matched subjects, not suffering from tinnitus. The aim of the study was to(More)
Auditory brainstem evoked potentials (ABP) were recorded in 59 healthy neonates and infants whose age ranged from 3 days to 18 months (6 age groups). Latencies of individual waves and the interpeak latencies (IPL) of I-III, III-V and I-V were analysed. A different maturational pattern was observed in the pontomedullary and the pontomesencephalic segments of(More)
We evaluated the ability of current magnetic resonance (MR) scanning techniques to detect and stage neuroblastoma in children, using surgical and histopathologic correlation. We prospectively and retrospectively reviewed 16 MR examinations from 14 patients with neuroblastoma (13 patients) or ganglioneuroblastoma (1 patient) and compared these to computed(More)
BACKGROUND Although pseudotumors have been reported at the sites of well-functioning and painful metal-on-metal hip prostheses, there are no objective data on the magnitude of the adverse reaction. This observational study was performed to investigate the ability of modified magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to detect and quantify adverse synovial responses(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective of our study was to compare the frequency of osseous and soft-tissue abnormalities in patients presenting with hip pain after resurfacing arthroplasty and after total hip arthroplasty (THA), correlate the MRI findings with histologic results, and determine which MRI findings are predictive of aseptic lymphocytic vasculitis-associated(More)
BACKGROUND Adverse local tissue reactions (ALTR) around metal-on-metal (MOM) hip arthroplasties are increasingly being recognized as a cause of failure. These reactions may be associated with intraoperative tissue damage and complication rates as high as 50% after revision. Although MRI can identify ALTR in MOM hips, it is unclear whether the MRI findings(More)
Sports-related injuries of the foot are common and may result in significant morbidity, particularly if inaccurate or delayed diagnosis leads to improper management. While less common than injuries of the ankle, sports-related foot injuries account for 2% to 18% of athletic injuries. Injury may occur as a result of acute trauma or chronic overuse, and(More)
Magnetic resonance (MR) imaging of the nerves, commonly known as MR neurography is increasingly being used as noninvasive means of diagnosing peripheral nerve disease. High-resolution imaging protocols aimed at imaging the nerves of the hip, thigh, knee, leg, ankle, and foot can demonstrate traumatic or iatrogenic injury, tumorlike lesions, or entrapment of(More)
