BACKGROUND Multislice spiral computed tomography (MSCT) with retrospectively ECG-gated image reconstruction permits coronary artery visualization. We investigated the method's ability to identify high-grade coronary artery stenoses and occlusions. METHODS AND RESULTS A total of 64 consecutive patients were studied by MSCT (4x1 mm cross-sections, 500-ms(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE MR angiography (MRA) is increasingly used as an alternative to digital subtraction angiography (DSA) to evaluate internal carotid artery (ICA) stenosis. Because MRA is not standardized in data acquisition and postprocessing, we sought to evaluate the effects of different acquisition techniques (time-of-flight MRA [TOF-MRA]) and(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE We prospectively evaluated the influence of different imaging techniques (time-of-flight MR angiography [TOF-MRA], contrast-enhanced MR angiography [CE-MRA], multisection CT angiography [CTA]) and postprocessing methods (maximum intensity projection [MIP], multiplanar reformation [MPR]) on carotid artery stenosis grading. MATERIALS(More)
UNLABELLED The AIM of this study was to determine the clinical relevance of compensating SPECT data for patient specific attenuation by the use of CT data simultaneously acquired with SPECT/CT when analyzing the skeletal uptake of polyphosphonates (DPD). Furthermore, the influence of misregistration between SPECT and CT data on uptake ratios was(More)
We report a rare case of bilateral orbital metastases as the presentation in a 63-year-old woman. Biopsy of a diffusely infiltrated medial rectus muscle suggested metastatic adenocarcinoma. Investigation revealed a palpable mass of the right breast not shown on mammography or sonography. Invasive lobular carcinoma was found at core-needle biopsy with(More)
The aim of this study was to determine the value of a fat suppressed 3D gradient-echo sequence (GRE) data set in comparison to a 2D GRE sequence in direct MR arthrography of the shoulder. For this purpose we examined 50 consecutive patients with subacute or chronic disorders of the shoulder using a 1.5 T scanner: Transverse T1-weighted 2D (slice thickness 4(More)
BACKGROUND Due to increased formaldehyde exposure, carcinogenic to humans, several researches have been studying the potential toxicity and the safe levels for human beings. The aim of this study was to investigate mutagenicity and cytotoxicity in buccal epithelial exfoliated cells (BEC) of students subjected to formaldehyde (FA) during anatomy classes. (More)
