Objective: To investigate the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) signal features and MRI appearance of common complications resulting from polyacrylamide hydrogel (PAHG) injection for facial plasty? Methods: MRI and clinical data of 42 patients treated by PAHG injection for facial plasty were retrospectively analyzed and the MRI features were compared with clinical data. All images were acquired using a SIEMENS Skyra 3.0T MR imaging unit. MR sequences, including FSE-T1WI, FSE-FS-T2WI, STIR and DWI...

Objective: To analyze the MRI of oblique vaginal septum syndrome (OVSS) and to assess the application of MRI in the diagnosis of OVSS. Methods: Clinical and imaging data of 18 patients with OVSS that was confirmed by surgery were retrospectively analyzed. The patients underwent MRI examinations preoperatively. All cases involved conventional MRI (transverse T1 WI and T2 WI, coronal T2WI?and sagittal T2WI) and contrast enhancement. The manifestations of OVSS were summarized based on MRI examinati...
Background: Vancomycin, a glycopeptide antibiotic, is commonly used against methicillin-resistant Gram-positive cocci. However, the nephrotoxic side-effects of Vancomycin results in dose restriction and reduces the duration of administration. Objectives: The present study was designed to evaluate the protective effects of aqueous saffron (Crocus sativus) extract on vancomycin-induced nephrotoxicity in rats. Materials and methods: In this study 32 adult male Wistar rats were randomly divided into...
Introduction : The tomosynthesis technology, DBT (Digital Breast Tomosynthesis) arises to aggregate information to the exams of mammography and even replace the two dimensions’ mammography. Quality control of these equipments are mandatory, in order to aiming the radioprotection and the optimization of the image acquisitions. Methods : The study was prospective, controlled, with the exhibition of only simulating objects for the analysis and comparison of two tomosynthesis equipment. In the Brazi...
Purpose : Carotid dissection is the most important cause of ischemic stroke in young adults. Ischemic stroke rate up to 20% in people under 50 years. Recently, young patients under 50 years of age who were admitted to the emergency department with ischemic stroke complaints were diagnosed with carotid dissection. Methods : For this purpose, cranio-cervical CT angio images of patients admitted to our clinic with suspected carotid artery dissection and diagnosed as ICA dissection were retrospectiv...
Introduction: Quantitative magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) methods to quantify muscle tissue fat content are increasingly used in the evaluation of patients with inherited neuromuscular disorders. Recently, these techniques gained importance to detect disease progression and possible treatment responses. In this study, two widely used fat quantification MRI sequences (two- and three- point Dixon) were applied to assess the reproducibility and reliability of the techniques. Methods: For this cli...
