PURPOSE To evaluate the prevalence and radiologic findings of annular tear (especially of contrast material enhancement), bulging disk, and disk herniation on T2-weighted and gadolinium-enhanced T1-weighted magnetic resonance (MR) images in people without low back pain (LBP) or sciatica. MATERIALS AND METHODS Thirty-six volunteers without LBP and/or(More)
Relatively little is known about the prevalence of sinusitis in a general population. Patients with suspected intracranial neurological disease can be considered as representative of the general population. On magnetic resonance imaging nearly 60% of the sinuses were affected. If the most common lesion (a maxillary polyp or cyst) was excluded, still 40% of(More)
Intraventricular meningiomas are rare, representing 0.5-5% of all intracranial meningiomas. They arise mostly within the lateral ventricles and more rarely in the third ventricle. Meningiomas of the fourth ventricle are exceptional. They are clearly defined as meningiomas arising from the choroid plexus and lying strictly within the fourth ventricle. We(More)
OBJECTIVE To report on the professional repercussions of an intravestibular schwannoma in a commercial airline pilot. PATIENTS The case of a single patient with a unilateral intravestibular schwannoma. INTERVENTION Return to a flying status with specific restrictions and under tight conditions depending on the outcomes of a mandatory periodic(More)
The usefulness of different magnetic resonance (MR) imaging sequences (coronal and sagittal spin-echo [SE] and three-dimensional fast low-angle shot [3D FLASH]) in the detection of pituitary microadenomas before and after gadolinium injection was prospectively evaluated in 28 patients with surgical confirmation. When evaluated separately, the most useful(More)
Bromocriptine suppresses the duration and severity of clinical signs of experimental allergic encephalitis, which is considered as an animal model for multiple sclerosis (MS). We conducted an open pilot study with 2.5 mg of bromocriptine two times a day on 18 patients with clinically or laboratory-supported definite MS (10 with the relapsing-remitting form(More)
CT-scan was used to examine rhinosinusitis in the developing sinuses; 196 children aged from 3 to 14 years were selected on the base of their chronic rhinorrhea, nasal congestion and cough. The patients were subdivided into six age groups (3-4, 5-6, 7-8, 9-10, 11-12 and 13-14 years). In the youngest age group, the authors noted maxillary involvement in 63%,(More)
