OBJECTIVE Stroke is the third leading cause of death and the leading cause of severe disability. During the "decade of the brain" in the 1990s, the most promising development was the treatment of acute ischemic stroke. It is thought to result from a cascade of events from energy depletion to cell death. In the initial minutes to hour, clinical deficit does(More)
We sought to analyze retrospectively the advantages of coronal and sagittal reformations obtained with multidetector row computed tomography (CT) in patients with acute head trauma. Multidetector 16-section CT was performed in 200 patients (110 male and 90 female; age range, 3-87 years; mean age, 45 years) with acute head trauma. Scans were performed(More)
OBJECTIVE We sought to define the ideal number of target lesions to be measured to assess disease response in patients undergoing chemotherapy for colon cancer metastases to the liver. MATERIALS AND METHODS Thirty consecutive patients were recruited for this study. Patients were part of a multisite, randomized, double-arm, phase 3 clinical trial involving(More)
BACKGROUND Spinal imaging has been a neglected part of abusive head trauma (AHT) imaging. As most of the radiographs and CT spine are negative in AHT in infants, the cervical spine is assumed to be normal. There is increasing evidence in the role of injury to brainstem and cervical cord in the pathogenesis of AHT. In addition, in courts of law, there is(More)
PURPOSE The characterization and differentiation of central nervous system (CNS) lymphoma has important diagnostic, therapeutic, and prognostic significance. The purpose of this study is to characterize the diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) and MR spectroscopic (MRS) findings in CNS lymphoma. MATERIALS AND METHODS Twenty consecutive patients (male [n= 12],(More)
Genital tuberculosis is an important cause of infertility in developing countries and hysterosalpingography (HSG) is the initial procedure performed for the evaluation. Reviewing 37 cases of female genital tuberculosis, we encountered various appearances on HSG. Of 579 HSGs performed over a period of 4 years, 492 (85%) were performed as part of infertility(More)
Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) belongs to the human herpesvirus family and is ubiquitously found in the adult human population. The most common clinical manifestation of EBV is the syndrome of infectious mononucleosis. Central nervous system involvement by EBV is rare, with very few cases of EBV encephalitis reported in the literature. The majority of these cases(More)
The purpose of this investigation was to establish the prevalence and distribution of MR findings associated with pelvic endometriosis in patients with a MRI diagnosis of adenomyosis. Retrospective review of the pelvic MRI in 59 patients (age 32-54 years, mean 42 years) who met strict MRI criteria for adenomyosis was performed. T1 weighted fat saturated and(More)
We reviewed the MR imaging features of ankle tuberculosis and determined the role of MR in its diagnosis. A retrospective analysis of 14 cases of ankle tuberculosis imaged with MRI was performed. Plain radiographs were also reviewed where available, and the imaging characteristics were noted. We also reviewed the medical records in order to assess the(More)
INTRODUCTION Tinnitus Handicap Inventory (THI) was developed in English to quantify the handicap caused due to tinnitus. According to a survey conducted by USA, 40 million people are affected by tinnitus. OBJECTIVES India being a multilingual country needs to develop and standardize THI in Indian languages.
