Early phase adaptations of muscle use and strength to isokinetic training.
The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of short periods of isokinetic resistance training on muscle use and strength. Seven men trained the right quadriceps femoris muscles (QF) 9 dExpand
Phase–contrast X–ray computed tomography for observing biological soft tissues
Biological soft tissues are almost transparent to hard X rays and therefore cannot be investigated without enhancement with a contrast medium, such as iodine. On the other hand, phase–contrast X–rayExpand
Cystic lesions of the maxillomandibular region: MR imaging distinction of odontogenic keratocysts and ameloblastomas from other cysts.
OBJECTIVE Differentiating odontogenic keratocysts and ameloblastomas from other cystic lesions in the maxillomandibular region is important because of their high recurrence rates. ConventionalExpand
Blood flow and liver imaging.
Spectrum of germ cell tumors: from head to toe.
Germ cell tumors (GCTs) occur most frequently in the gonads and are relatively rare in other sites, such as the pineal gland, neurohypophysis, mediastinum, and retroperitoneum. GCTs are thought toExpand
MR imaging of the uterine cervix: imaging-pathologic correlation.
Magnetic resonance (MR) imaging is useful not only for preoperative staging of gynecologic malignancies but also for prediction of the histopathologic features of a variety of intrapelvic tumors.Expand
The use of magnetic resonance imaging to evaluate the effects of cooling on skeletal muscle after strenuous exercise
The purpose of this study was to investigate the separate effects of cooling during the acute (within 60 min post-exercise) or subacute (24–168 h post-exercise) phase on skeletal muscle afterExpand
Ovarian carcinoma in patients with endometriosis: MR imaging findings.
OBJECTIVE Various types of malignancy can develop in patients with endometriosis. Enhancing mural nodules have been reported as an imaging characteristic of malignant transformations. We evaluatedExpand
Quantification of cerebral metabolites in glioma patients with proton MR spectroscopy using T2 relaxation time correction.
This study was aimed to investigate the significance of absolute concentration of metabolites in glioma patients using proton MR spectroscopy (MRS) with T2 relaxation time correction using threeExpand
Retained surgical sponges: CT and US appearance.
The computed tomographic (CT) and ultrasonographic (US) appearances of retained surgical sponges are described. In each case, the presence of a sponge was confirmed at repeat operation. CTExpand
