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)
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 (MnCl(2) and absorption promoters dissolved in water) intake at three different MR scanners of 0.23,(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.

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)
BACKGROUND Intraocular silicone oil may migrate into the optic nerve or the cerebral ventricles, but little is known about the frequency of these events. The aim of this prospective neuroimaging study was to determine the frequency of extraocular silicone oil migration in humans operated for retinal detachment. METHODS Nineteen patients included in this(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)
BACKGROUND 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). METHODS Between March 2006 and February 2007, consecutive patients who(More)
RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES Both magnetic resonance (MR) and computed tomographic (CT) colonography are useful for colon examination. With sensitivities close to those for conventional colonoscopy (CC) for polyps, colonography has been proposed as an alternative to diagnostic CC. MR colonography (MRC) with fecal tagging may be a method of gaining further(More)
BACKGROUND The association of Crohn's disease with Fistulizing Hidradenitis Suppurativa (FHS) was established in the 90s. FHS is a chronic disease, characterized by the formation of multiple abscesses and sinus tracts in apocrine gland-bearing areas. The aetiology and pathogenesis is unknown. The disease is painful and often socially disabling implying a(More)
OBJECTIVE Conventional colonoscopy (CC) is the gold standard for colonic examinations. However, patient acceptance is not high. Patient acceptance is influenced by several factors, notably anticipation and experience. This has led to the assumption that patient acceptance would be higher in non-invasive examinations such as MR/CT colonography (MRC/CTC) and(More)
