The objectives of this study were to assess the relationship between right and left hemidiaphragmatic motions during breathing in normal subjects and to investigate alterations in lung motion with changes in posture, using dynamic magnetic resonance (MR) imaging. Imaging was conducted with a 1.5-T MR scanner using fast imaging employing steady-state(More)
RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES The aim of this study is to investigate the frequency of bronchomalacia associated with sarcoidosis and compare the extent of air trapping in patients with sarcoidosis with and without bronchomalacia. MATERIALS AND METHODS Eighteen consecutive patients (6 men, 12 women; age, 29-64 years; mean age, 47 years) with pathologically(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study is to compare the incidence of pulmonary embolism (PE) on computed tomography (CT) studies between younger and older patients to determine if there is an age-related bias for overutilization of CT pulmonary angiography (CTPA) in younger patients. MATERIAL AND METHODS Six hundred thirty-one consecutive CTPA cases for(More)
PURPOSE We assessed the feasibility of utilizing three-dimensional (3D) phase sensitive inversion recovery (IR) images for preoperatively determining deep brain stimulator position. METHODS We measured geometric distortion with a grid phantom and evaluated images of 3 volunteers to determine optimum imaging parameters for 3D phase sensitive IR. RESULTS(More)
