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)
Multidimensional scaling experiments were performed with "size" and "brightness" as parameters. Subjects (ss) had to rate the dissimilarity of pairs of discs differing in size or in brightness only, or in both parameters. It was then attempted to find a rule, by which the dissimilarity judgements of two-dimensional differences can be predicted from(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 comparison of inter-with intra-ictal SPECT images plays an important role during the diagnosis and treatment of epilepsy patients. Although there is already commercial software available to address this problem using complex clinical workflows, this article describes a different way of looking at this issue. During the examination various issues arise(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)
