To compare accuracy, image quality and radiation dose between high-pitch spiral and sequential modes on 128-slice dual-source computed tomographic (DSCT) angiography in children with congenital heart disease (CHD). Forty patients suspected with CHD underwent 128-slice DSCT angiography with high-pitch mode and sequential mode respectively. All the anomalies(More)
To perform a meta-analysis to compare 18FDG PET, CT, MRI and bone scintigraphy (BS) for the diagnosis of bone metastases. Databases including MEDLINE and EMBASE were searched for relevant original articles published from January 1995 to January 2010. Software was used to obtain pooled estimates of sensitivity, specificity and summary receiver operating(More)
To investigate the feasibility of low-dose whole pancreas CT perfusion in the clinical practice. Sixty-one patients suspected pancreatic disease underwent low-dose whole pancreas CT perfusion scan (by body weight, group A: 70 kV, 120 mAs; group B: 80 kV, 100 mAs) and the individualized pancreas scan. Forty-six patients were enrolled. Perfusion(More)
To study the clinical application of dual-energy CT (DECT) in the knee ligaments. Twelve cases (24 knees) were scanned using dual-energy CT for the knee. Two- and three-dimensional images were used for display in all cases by means of multi-planar reformation (MPR) and volume rendering technique (VRT). All images were ranked by two radiologists according to(More)
To explore the clinical value of low-dose prospective ECG-triggering dual-source CT (DSCT) angiography in infants and children with complex congenital heart disease (CHD) compared with transthoracic echocardiography (TTE). Thirty-five patients (mean age: 16 months, range: 2 months to 6 years; male 15; mean weight: 12 kg) underwent low-dose prospective(More)
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are a class of non-protein-coding small RNAs with the capacity to regulate fundamental biological processes essential for cancer initiation and progression. In the present study, we analyzed miRNA expression levels between multidrug-resistant gastric carcinoma cell line SGC7901/ADR and its parent cell line SGC7901 using a miRNA(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the clinical application of 64-slice spiral CT in the diagnosis of the Tetralogy of Fallot. METHODS Eighteen patients with diagnosed Tetralogy of Fallot underwent cardiac CT angiography with 64-slice CT (CTA). Two- and three-dimensional images were used for diagnosing in all cases by means of MPR (coronal, sagital and oblique), cMPR,(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the correlation between the degree of systolic compression of mural coronary artery (MCA) and the length and depth of myocardial bridging (MB) with dual-source computed tomography (DSCT). METHODS The length and depth of MB were measured from diastolic phase. All datasets were reconstructed in 5% steps of R-R interval. The optimum(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate a possible mechanism responsible for anti-apoptotic effects of melatonin and provide theoretical evidences for clinical therapy. METHODS Ischemia-reperfusion mediated neuronal cell injury model was constructed in cerebellar granule neurons (CGNs) by deprivation of glucose, serum and oxygen in media. After ischemia, melatonin was(More)
AIM To investigate whole-body metabolic disorder and hepatic glucose output (HGO) disturbance in rats with insulin resistance induced by a short-term high-fat diet, and the effect of arachidonic acid (AA). METHODS Twenty-four normal male Wistar rats (230-250 g) were randomly divided into 3 groups according to their weight and fed for 12 weeks: control(More)
