    Background: Unstable carotid plaques that consist of large lipid pool and intraplaque hemorrhage are more likely to cause cerebral infarction. We previously developed an integrated backscatter (IBS) ultrasound color-coded mapping method to evaluate the tissue characteristics of plaques. The...

    The damage mechanism of homocystinuria that occurs due to cystathionine beta-synthase deficiency is not known. However, it is proposed that transmethylation disorders and NMDA- mediated excitotoxicity cause endothelial damage, thereby leading to vascular thrombosis and epileptic seizures. In...

    High-resolution axial black-blood MR imaging (BB MRI) has been shown to be able to characterise carotid plaque morphology. The aim of this study was to explore the accuracy of this technique in quantifying the severity of carotid stenosis. A prospective study of 54 patients with symptomatic...

    The diagnosis of carotidynia, an idiopathic pain syndrome of the neck, remains controversial in part due to a paucity of associated radiographic findings. However, MRI/MRA provides diagnostic information in the evaluation of presumed carotidynia. Moreover, MRI/MRA findings localize the...

    Abstract: Objective: To determine if sufficient evidence exists to support the use of magnetic resonance angiography as a means of selecting patients with recently symptomatic high grade carotid stenosis for surgery. Design: Systematic review of published research on the diagnostic performance...

    Background and Purpose: The ‘lacunar hypothesis’ has been challenged, since small (diameter <15 mm) subcortical infarcts can be produced by middle cerebral artery disease (MCAD) or cardioembolism (CE), while a larger infarct can occur without evidence of MCAD or CE. We sought to...

    We describe the case of a 37-year-old woman who presented with a complaint of recurrent headaches since childhood. Clinical examination revealed the presence of a reddish-bluish mass in the inferior half of the tympanic membrane in her right ear. Source and three-dimensional time-of-flight...

    This trial assessed diagnostic accuracy of contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) with meglumine gadoterate (Gd-DOTA) at 3 Tesla (T) over unenhanced MRA at 3 T in non-coronary arterial diseases by comparing their accuracy with that of the gold standard, x-ray angiography....

    The authors reported a patient with unilateral blindness of the left eye after trauma. Apart from paralysis of the 4th cranial nerve and mild optic nerve edema, there was no structural problem during the ophthalmologic examination. Brain CT scan, CT angiography and MRI demonstrated aneurysm in...
