Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the brains of 32 patients who met the DSM-III criteria for obsessive-compulsive disorder and of 14 normal subjects frequently revealed abnormalities, but none was specific to obsessive-compulsive disorder. Spin-lattice relaxation time (T1) for right frontal white matter was prolonged in the patients compared to the… (More)
Magnetic resonance imaging did not diagnose neuropathology in 15 autistic patients. Measurements of the midsagittal area and volume of the fourth ventricle did not differ between these patients and matched control subjects.
PURPOSE To compare magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) with duplex Doppler ultrasound (US) and x-ray angiography (XRA) in the evaluation of the carotid bifurcation. METHODS The carotid arteries of 61 patients were studied using MRA, US, or XRA; 31 of the patients underwent all three examinations. MRA included both 2D and 3D time-of-flight sequences.… (More)
High resolution magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the brain was performed on 18 male schizophrenic patients and 15 male normal control subjects using an identical imaging protocol. The number and size of T2 hyperintense foci were clinically quantified by an academic radiologist. Large foci (greater than or equal to 3 mm in diameter) were observed more… (More)
