PURPOSE To depict the normal anatomy of cranial nerves in detail and define the exact relationships between cranial nerves and adjacent structures with three-dimensional reversed fast imaging with steady-state precession (FISP) (3D-PSIF) with diffusion-weighted MR sequence. MATERIALS AND METHODS 3D-PSIF with diffusion-weighted MR sequence was performed(More)
BACKGROUND The study aimed to prospectively observe the clinical and neuroimaging features of pontine infarction with pure motor hemiparesis (PMH) or hemiplegia at early stage. METHODS In 118 consecutive selected patients with the first-ever ischemic stroke within 6 hours after onset, fifty of them presented with PMH or hemiplegia and had negative acute(More)
With the development of superconducting magnets, the chances of exposure to intense static magnetic fields (SMFs) have increased. Therefore, safety concerns related to magnetic field exposure need to be studied, especially the effects of magnetic field exposure on the central nervous system. Only a limited number of studies prove a direct connection between(More)
This study aimed to compare the accuracy of CT and MRI in determining the invasion of thyroid cartilage by and the T staging of laryngeal carcinoma with anterior vocal commissure (AVC) involvement. A total of 26 cases of laryngeal carcinomas with AVC involvement from May 2012 to January 2014 underwent enhanced CT and MRI scan, out of whom 6 patients also(More)
The aim of the study was to compare differences between lymphoma and inflammation as indicated by high diffuse uptake of F-fluorodeoxyglucose (F-FDG) in the spleen, liver, and bone marrow without increased F-FDG uptake in the lymph nodes and without enlarged peripheral lymph nodes.Eighteen lymphoma patients and 14 inflammation patients were examined with(More)
The findings regarding the effects of thiazolidinediones (TZDs) in nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) patients have been inconsistent, and the assessment of different clinical variables for evaluating the effects of TZDs confound a direct comparison of the results of different randomized clinical trials (RCTs), especially with regard to lifestyle changes.(More)
This article explores the features and the role of the anterior vocal commissure (AVC) structure and the surface morphologies of glottic carcinomas with AVC involvement to provide a reference for the selection of transoral carbon dioxide (CO2) laser surgery. A total of 31 cases of glottic carcinomas with AVC involvement from May 2012 to January 2014 were(More)
Volvariella volvacea, usually harvested in its egg stage, is one of the most popular mushrooms in Asia. The rapid transition from the egg stage to elongation stage, during which the stipe stretches to almost full length leads to the opening of the cap and rupture of the universal veil, and is considered to be one of the main factors that negatively impacts(More)
PURPOSE To quantitatively evaluate the diagnostic efficiency of parameters from diffusion and dynamic contrast-enhanced MR which based on tumor parenchyma (TP) and peritumoral (PT) area in classification of brain tumors. METHODS 45 patients (male: 23, female: 22; mean age: 46 y) were prospectively recruited and they underwent conventional, DCE-MR and DWI(More)
