OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to estimate the risk of injury from dental magnetic attachments due to their radiofrequency (RF) heating and magnetically induced displacement during 3.0 T MRI. METHODS To examine the magnetic attachments, we adopted the American Society for Testing and Materials F2182-02a and F2052-06 standards in two MRI systems(More)
The erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) test is one of the most common and traditional laboratory tests in the world. It reflects both plasma concentration of acute-phase proteins of large molecular size and anemia (International Council for Standardization in Hematology, 1993). The ESR test method is easy to perform and inexpensive. Therefore, it is used(More)
Introduction Detailed information on anatomy and hemodynamics in cerebrovascular disorders such as AVM and Moyamoya disease is mandatory for defined diagnosis and treatment planning [1]. DSA may still be a gold standard for diagnostic modality but is otherwise invasive. Contrast-enhanced dynamic MR angiography (CE-dMRA) is a useful technique but poses a(More)

The infundibular recess (IR), commonly illustrated as a V-shaped hollow in the sagittal view, is recognized as a small extension of the third ventricle into the pituitary stalk. The precise morphology of the human IR is unknown. The present study sought to delineate the morphology of the IR using magnetic resonance imaging. Subjects included 100 patients(More)
