Functional MRI (fMRI) was used to investigate brain activations resulting from mechanical stimulation in normal rats and in a rat model of neuropathic pain. In the previous MRI-compatible mechanical stimulator, stimulation intensity was not adjustable. In this study, the(More)
UNLABELLED The magnetic technique for sentinel node biopsy provides a radioisotope-free alternative for staging breast cancer. It requires refinement to reduce "residual iron content" at injection sites by maximising lymphatic uptake to prevent "void artefacts" on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), which could adversely affect clinical use. The site and(More)

At her first consultation, a transvaginal ultrasonography (US) revealed a homogeneous cystic mass in the lower abdomen. Over a period of 8 months the US findings of the content of this mass changed from fine and faint internal echoes to(More)
