The aim of the present study was to quantify changes in human skeletal muscle pennation angle (F theta) values during growth and adult life. The human gastrocnemius medialis muscle of 162 subjects (96 males and 66 females) in the age range 0-70 years was scanned with ultrasonography. The subjects were laying prone, at rest, with the ankle maintained at 90(More)
OBJECTIVES The present study was performed to evaluate whether the modalities of risk stratification after myocardial infarction were still operative in the thrombolytic era. BACKGROUND Prediction of fatal events in the aftermath of myocardial infarction relies on tests which aim to assess myocardial function, residual ischaemia and propensity for(More)
In order to evaluate the clinical value of a new myocardial perfusion tracer, a series of 30 patients (25 male, 5 female, mean age 56 years) referred for thallium 201 stress/redistribution scintigraphy has been studied using stress/rest (n = 7) or rest/stress (n = 23) protocols with technetium 99m teboroxime (Cardiotec SQUIBB). In all cases coronary artery(More)
BACKGROUND Chest CT is very sensitive in assessing pulmonary damage in bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) and radiological findings in BPD are well described. Validated CT scores are available to assess BPD, as available in other pulmonary diseases such as cystic fibrosis. AIM To investigate whether there is a correlation between radiological pulmonary(More)
RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES To evaluate the potential of an iron oxide-based MR contrast agent for the detection and delineation of experimental liver tumors during the early vascular phase of the compound. METHODS Superparamagnetic blood pool agent (SBPA) was administered intravenously to rabbits bearing VX2 tumors. Images were acquired before the(More)
Systemic onset juvenile rheumatoid arthritis is the most common rheumatologic disorder of childhood. Pleuropulmonary manifestations are rare in children in this multiorgan disease, and are usually not severe. The diagnosis of systemic onset juvenile rheumatoid arthritis is made by exclusion, in the presence of clinical findings constellation. We present the(More)
Infantile myofibromatosis is a disorder of infancy and early childhood characterised by single or multiple nodular lesions localised to bone, muscle, viscera, subcutaneous tissue or central nervous system. These pseudotumours contain smooth muscle and fibroblasts. The prognosis depends on the amount, as well as location, of the lesions. We present the(More)
