This study sought to determine whether visceral adipose tissue (VAT) and/or its anthropometric surrogates could significantly predict health-related variables (HRV) in overweight Caucasian (CC) (n = 36) and African-American (AA) (n = 30) women. With the use of magnetic resonance imaging, findings showed significantly higher volume and area of VAT (P <… (More)
PURPOSE To identify and describe the normal intradural vessels detected on MR angiograms of the thoracolumbar spine. METHODS Six adult subjects who had clinical evidence of myelopathy, yet normal findings at spinal digital subtraction angiography (DSA), were also studied without and with contrast-enhanced MR imaging and three-dimensional time-of-flight,… (More)
The authors report a case of reversed intestinal rotation and review the embryology, clinical presentation, and radiographic findings of this disorder. Although this developmental anomaly of the bowel is rare, it may be diagnosed by the distinctive position, course, and narrowing of the transverse colon.
The trigeminal nerve is the largest of all the cranial nerves (4,7). At its origin along the lateral aspect of the pons at the root entry zone the nerve appears as a single form but as it courses from intracranial to extra cranially it divides into three segments referred to as V1, V2 and V3 or ophthalmic, maxillary and mandibular respectfully(4). The… (More)
Pure motor stroke (PMS) manifesting as distal weakness of a single extremity has rarely been described. The authors report a 59-year-old man with PMS who had primarily distal weakness of a single lower extremity, which to the authors' knowledge has not been previously described. Four days after onset, positive diffusion-weighted imaging confirmed that the… (More)
Pure motor neurologic deficits occur among 3%-14% of all patients with ischemic stroke. Pure motor monoparesis occurs among 2%-22% of patients with pure motor stroke. The authors report the case of a 73-year-old woman with isolated finger weakness as the sole manifestation of a small cortical-subcortical pure motor stroke diagnosed within 4 hours of onset… (More)
