RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES To compare enhancement patterns of gadomer-17 with those of gadopentetate dimeglumine in VX2 carcinomas after irradiation on rabbits. METHODS Twelve rabbits with VX2 carcinoma in the thigh underwent dynamic contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance (MR) imaging with gadopentetate dimeglumine and gadomer-17 at 24-hour intervals before(More)
PURPOSE The neurological outcome of cervical spondylotic myelopathy (CSM) may depend on multiple factors, including age, symptom duration, cord compression ratio, cervical curvature, canal stenosis, and factors related to magnetic resonance (MR) signal intensity (SI). Each factor may act independently or interactively with others. To clarify the factors in(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Malformations of cerebral cortical development are common anomalies of the brain, typically causing developmental delay or seizures that are classically thought to begin in childhood. We present clinical and MR imaging data of 16 patients with cortical malformations in whom evidence of neurologic dysfunction was first noted in(More)
PURPOSE We prospectively investigated whether high intramedullary SI and contrast [gadolinium-diethylene-triamine-pentaacetic acid (Gd-DTPA)] enhancement in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) are associated with postoperative prognosis in cervical compressive myelopathy (CCM) patients. METHODS Seventy-four patients with ventral cord compression at one or(More)
BACKGROUND Ossification of the posterior longitudinal ligament (OPLL) may increase the risk of spinal cord injury (SCI) with various neurological deficits after minor trauma. However, few studies have investigated the influence of OPLL on neurological outcome after acute cord injury. We examined whether severe spinal canal stenosis caused by OPLL affects(More)
OBJECTIVE To describe the brain CT and MR imaging findings of unusual acute encephalitis involving the thalamus. MATERIALS AND METHODS We retrospectively reviewed the medical records and CT and/or MR imaging findings of six patients with acute encephalitis involving the thalamus. CT (n=6) and MR imaging (n=6) were performed during the acute and/or(More)
The aim of this study was to reveal the clinical and encephalographic (EEG) features of infantile spasms (IS) with malformations of cortical development (MCDs). The clinical features, EEG findings, neuroimaging studies and outcomes of various therapeutic modalities for 27 patients with IS and MCDs were reviewed. Background activities of EEG on the MCDs,(More)
Patients with intramedullary signal intensity (SI) changes have a poor prognosis after surgical decompression in cervical compressive myelopathy (CCM); however, some patients show no clear relationship between the SI and postsurgical prognosis. This discrepancy may be because no comprehensive and proper quantitative evaluation exists to assess SI on(More)
Bifid inferior nasal turbinates-two inferior turbinates with a single root observed in the nasal cavity-are an extremely rare anatomical variation, especially when they are observed bilaterally and exist with other variations. We report a case of bilateral bifid inferior nasal turbinates with bilateral secondary middle turbinates. We discuss the findings of(More)
