The value of functional MR Imaging (fMRI) in assessing language lateralization in epileptic patients candidate for surgical treatment is increasingly recognized. However few data are available for left-handed patients. Moreover determining factors for atypical dominance in patients investigated with contemporary imaging have not been reported. We studied 20(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the effectiveness of three-dimensional (3D) dynamic time-resolved contrast-enhanced MRA (TR-CE-MRA) using a combination of a parallel imaging technique (ASSET: array spatial sensitivity encoding technique) and a time-resolved method (TRICKS: time-resolved imaging of contrast kinetics) and to compare it with 3D dynamic TR-CE-MRA using(More)
Embolization is an important therapeutic tool for the treatment of cerebral arteriovenous malformations and is a part of the therapeutic strategy. In selected cases, it may lead to a total and permanent cure per se, but in most cases it will be an adjunctive therapy to radiosurgery. The authors review techniques of embolization, perioperative care,(More)
Our purpose was to investigate leukoaraïosis (LA) using three-dimensional MR imaging combined with advanced image-processing technology to attempt to group signal abnormalities according to their etiology. Coronal T2-weighted fast fluid-attenuated inversion-recovery (FLAIR) sequences and three-dimensional T1-weighted fast spoiled gradient recalled echo(More)
Patterns of leukoaraiosis were analyzed on both T2-weighted fast fluid-attenuated inversion-recovery and 3D T1-weighted sequences in 23 community-dwelling older subjects with mild cognitive impairment. Mobility assessment had allowed their classification into higher and lower mobility groups (P<0.0001). Lower mobility appeared correlated with frontal(More)
The case of a female patient with two traumatic aneurysms diagnosed by serial angiography is reported. The first aneurysms, located on the orbito-frontal branch of the left anterior cerebral artery, was removed. The second aneurysm involving the right middle meningeal artery was treated by endovascular embolization. The causes and physiopathology of such(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Radiosurgical treatment of arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) has slow and progressive vasoocclusive effects. We sought to determine if early posttherapeutic angiography provides relevant information for the management of radiosurgically treated AVMs. METHODS Between 1990 and 1993, the progress of 138 of 197 cerebral AVMs treated by(More)
We report six cases of segmental agenesis of the internal carotid a. discovered in adult patients: one case of cervical segmental agenesis (no. 1), one case of cervical and petrosal segmental agenesis (no. 2), two cases of vertical cavernous segmental agenesis (nos. 3 and 4) and two cases of distal segmental agenesis, one unilateral (no. 5) and the other(More)
PURPOSE To assess the efficacy of endovascular treatment (EVT) of intracranial aneurysms for recurrence, bleeding, and de novo aneurysm formation at long-term follow-up (> 10 years after treatment) with magnetic resonance (MR) angiography and to identify risk factors for recurrence through a prospective study and a systematic review of the literature.
