The purpose of this study was to correlate intravoxel incoherent motion (IVIM) imaging with classical perfusion-weighted MRI metrics in human gliomas. Parametric images for slow diffusion coefficient (D), fast diffusion coefficient (D*), and fractional perfusion-related volume (f) in patients with high-grade gliomas were generated. Maps of Fp (plasma flow),(More)
AIM To review and describe the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) features in patients with suspected placental invasion and correlate the findings with surgery and pathology findings. MATERIALS AND METHODS A retrospective review was undertaken of the MRI images of seven consecutive patients with ultrasound findings suspicious for placental invasion. Two(More)
'Pasteurella' anatipestifer (Pa) isolates from local ducks were typed by slide and tube agglutination tests using antisera against representative strains of existing serotypes. As the strains of serotype 13 and serotype 17 were found to be serologically identical, it is proposed that they be jointly designated as serotype 13. It is also proposed that the(More)
Pseudomonas pseudomallei isolates from 62 human, 17 animal, 3 soil and 3 water samples were examined by genomic DNA digestion with PstI. Five major (RE I, II, III, IV, V) reproducible restriction patterns were observed, with most (56/62) of the human isolates displaying RE I (30/62), II (5/62), III (15/62), IV (4/62), V (2/62), and the animal (16/17), soil(More)
A 33-year-old woman presented with a painless right breast lump of four weeks' duration. There were no symptoms such as fever or night sweats. Mammogram revealed an elliptical lesion in the retromammary region. Ultrasonography showed a hypoechoeic collection deep in the right breast. As the lesion was localised to the chest wall, computed tomography of the(More)
INTRODUCTION This study aims to evaluate our experience with self-expanding nitinol stent- enabled recanalisation of long-length occlusions (30 cm or more) of the superficial femoral artery (SFA). METHODS 573 patients underwent 842 lower limb interventions from August 2006 to December 2008. A retrospective review of patients undergoing recanalisation of(More)
Screening and identification of Salmonella enteritidis in commercial poultry flocks have assumed principal roles in preventing transmission of this pathogen to humans from hen eggs. Serologic diagnosis of S. enteritidis infection in commercial flocks currently relies on laboratory-based tests for detection of antibodies to the lipopolysaccharide, whole(More)
INTRODUCTION We describe a patient with an unusual presentation of an isolated hypoglossal nerve palsy as a result of perineural invasion (PI) from adenoid cystic carcinoma (ACC). We will also discuss the diagnostic pitfalls as well as present a short literature review of adenoid cystic carcinomas and suggest improvement to the current diagnostic algorithm(More)
