PURPOSE To evaluate the correlation between apparent diffusion coefficient measurements (ADCtumor and ADCratio ) and the Gleason score from radical prostatectomy specimens. MATERIALS AND METHODS Seventy-one patients with clinically localized prostate cancer scheduled for radical prostatectomy were prospectively enrolled. Multiparametric magnetic resonance(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate application of MRI and magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) to monitor bone marrow cellularity during pretransplant priming with chemotherapy and hematopoietic growth factor (HGF) administration. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 10 lymphoma and myeloma patients, in remission following induction therapy and considered eligible for(More)
OBJECT The purpose of the present study was to elucidate the value of the lumbar and intraventricular infusion tests in the selection of patients with obstructive hydrocephalus (OH) for endoscopic third ventriculostomy (ETV), and whether the presence of a diminished cranial subarachnoid space was a source of error in the interpretation of the results.

The purpose of this investigation was to determine if addition of infragenicular steady-state (SS) magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) to first-pass imaging improves diagnostic performance compared with first-pass imaging alone in patients with peripheral arterial disease (PAD) undergoing whole-body (WB) MRA. Twenty consecutive patients with PAD referred(More)
MR colonography (MRC) is a non-invasive method of examining the colon, but it is still only used in a few specialized centers on a daily basis. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the performance of MRC with improved fecal tagging vs. conventional colonoscopy (CC). Between March 2006 and February 2007, consecutive patients who received first-time(More)
To evaluate the diagnostic performance of preoperative multiparametric MRI with extracapsular extension (ECE) risk-scoring in the assessment of prostate cancer tumour stage (T-stage) and prediction of ECE at final pathology. Eighty-seven patients with clinically localised prostate cancer scheduled for radical prostatectomy were prospectively enrolled.(More)
To evaluate the effect of a new oral manganese contrast agent (CMC-001) on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) intensities at different magnetic field strengths. Twelve healthy volunteers underwent abdominal MRI 1 week before and within 2.5–4.5 h after CMC-001 (MnCl2 and absorption promoters dissolved in water) intake at three different MR scanners of 0.23,(More)
In 280 patients with stage II breast cancer, chest X-ray was performed at 6 and 12 months and yearly thereafter to the 6th year or until recurrence, another cancer was detected, the patient refused further follow-up or died. Among 1289 scheduled chest X-rays, malignant changes were found in 20 patients, of which only 3 had pulmonary symptoms. In a further(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of the present study was to examine the relationship between knee-straining work and radiological findings of knee osteoarthritis and to study the relation between radiological findings and self-reported knee complaints and clinical signs of knee osteoarthritis. METHODS The material consisted of 133 floorlayers, 506 carpenters, and 327(More)
RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to evaluate our preliminary experience with routine contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance angiography (CE-MRA) of the lower limb arteries in patients with end-stage renal failure. MATERIALS AND METHODS A retrospective analysis was performed on clinical, physiological, and imaging data for 104 patients(More)
