OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to investigate the efficacy of thoracic MRI with fast imaging sequences without contrast administration at 1.5 T for evaluating thoracic abnormalities by comparing MRI findings with contrast-enhanced MDCT findings. SUBJECTS AND METHODS A prospective study included consecutively registered pediatric patients who from(More)
OBJECTIVES Wilson's disease (WD) is characterized with the accumulation of copper in the liver and brain. The objective of this study is to quantitatively measure the susceptibility changes of basal ganglia and brain stem of pediatric patients with neurological WD using quantitative susceptibility mapping (QSM) in comparison to healthy controls. METHODS(More)
PURPOSE To prospectively compare the diagnostic capabilities of quantitative susceptibility mapping (QSM) with those of phase images of susceptibility-weighted imaging (SWI) in the detection and differentiation of intracranial calcification and hemorrhage in pediatric patients. METHOD Sixteen pediatric patients (9 girls, 7 boys) with a mean age of 9.4±6.3(More)
The aim of this study was to present our experience with 5 cases of fetal schizencephaly in terms of prenatal diagnostic features, and postnatal outcome. The database of prenatal diagnosis unit was searched for antenatally diagnosed cases with schizencephaly. Maternal characteristics, ultrasonography, prenatal-postnatal magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)(More)
Our aim was to assess diffusion weighted imaging (DWI) of neuroblastic tumors and whether apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) value may have a role in discrimination among neuroblastoma, ganglioneuroblastoma and ganglioneuroma. The DWIs (b = 0–800 s/mm2) of 24 children (13 girls, 11 boys) who were diagnosed neuroblastic tumors on histopathological(More)
Thirty-six year-old female patient was admitted to the hospital with the complaints of increasing numbness in left arm and leg, headache and vomitting for one month. In her physical examination, 1/5 strength loss in left arm and leg and disestesy were detected. In the computerized tomography (CT) an intracranial tumor was showed in right parietal lob and in(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate diffusion characteristics of tubers and white matter lesions in children with tuberous sclerosis (TS) using diffusion tensor imaging (DTI). MATERIALS AND METHODS Eighteen children (11 male, 7 female; mean age 9.3years, age range 1-16years) with a definite diagnosis of TS were recruited in this study. Apparent diffusion coefficient(More)
Maternal autoimmune thrombocytopenic purpura (AITP) can cause fetal intracranial hemorrhage. A 19-year-old primigravida was referred to our institution for prenatally detected ventriculomegaly at 30th week of gestation. Her personal and family histories were unremarkable. Her platelet count was 54 × 109/L. Fetal neurosonography showed intraparenchymal(More)
A 10-year-old girl was admitted with complaints of abdominal discomfort episodes. Physical examination was unremarkable, and laboratory findings were within normal limits, which were as follows: hemoglobin, 13.5 g/dL; white cell count, 6 10/mL; platelet count, 280 10/mL; blood urea nitrogen, 11 mg/dL; creatinine, 0.6 mg/dL; aspartate aminotransferase, 15(More)
