Non-contrast MRI diagnosis of adhesive capsulitis of the shoulder. To investigate non-contrast MRI findings of clinical adhesive capsulitis. In detection of adhesive capsulitis, sensitivity is Adhesive capsulitis can be accurately diagnosed on non-contrast MRI shoulder examinations with appropriate clinical criteria without direct MR arthrography. The aim of this study was to evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of 3-T non-contrast MRI versus 1.
Fifty patients thirty men and twenty women, mean age An optimized high- resolution proton density spin echo pulse sequence was included in the 3-T non-contrast MRI protocol. The 3-T non-contrast MRI identified forty-two of the forty-three arthroscopically proven tears at the labral-chondral transitional zone sensitivity, Non-invasive assessment of the hip is possible with 3-T MR magnet.
When compared with 1. Diagnostic accuracy of noncontrast MRI for detection of glenohumeral cartilage lesions: The purpose of this study was to determine the prevalence of glenohumeral articular cartilage lesions in patients with rotator cuff tendinopathy and to assess the accuracy of noncontrast magnetic resonance imaging MRI mnrmonics detecting these defects compared eashid the “gold standard” of khali.
Noncontrast MRI studies obtained in 84 consecutive patients undergoing shoulder arthroscopy for rotator cuff tendinopathy mean age, Two fellowship-trained, experienced musculoskeletal radiologists were blinded from the arthroscopic findings and independently gfe the glenoid and humeral head cartilage khaliv 2 separate occasions.
At arthroscopy, cartilage lesions of the humeral head were detected menmonics 23 patients frequency, Overall accuracy of noncontrast MRI for detection of glenohumeral articular cartilage lesions is good; however, interpretation is reader dependent, and accuracy is mhemonics reduced for detection of low-grade lesions. On the basis of these findings, we recommend that patients with rotator cuff tendinopathy undergoing arthroscopy be informed that the presence and severity of cartilage lesions may be underestimated on MRI.
Published by Mosby, Inc. Automatic segmentation of meningioma from non-contrasted brain MRI integrating fuzzy clustering and region growing. In recent years, magnetic resonance imaging MRI has become important in brain tumor diagnosis. Using this modality, physicians can locate specific pathologies by analyzing differences in tissue character presented in different types of MR images.
This paper uses an algorithm integrating fuzzy-c-mean FCM and region growing techniques for automated tumor image segmentation from patients with menigioma.
Only non-contrasted T1 and T2 -weighted MR images are included in the analysis. The study’s aims are to correctly locate tumors in the images, and to detect those situated in the midline position of the brain.
The study used non-contrasted T1- and T2-weighted MR images from 29 patients with menigioma. After FCM clustering, 32 groups of images from each patient group were put through the region-growing procedure for pixels aggregation. Later, using knowledge-based information, the system selected tumor-containing images from these groups and merged them into one tumor image. An alternative semi-supervised method was added at this stage for comparison with the automatic fre.
Finally, the tumor image was optimized by a morphology operator. Results from automatic segmentation were compared to the “ground truth” GT on a pixel level. Overall data were then evaluated using a quantified system. The quantified parameters, including the “percent match” PM and “correlation ratio” CRsuggested a high match between GT and the present study’s system, as well as a fair level of ,nemonics.
The hre were compatible with those from other related studies. The system successfully detected all of the tumors situated at the midline of brain. Six cases failed in the automatic group. One also failed in the semi-supervised alternative. The mnemonic five cases presented noticeable edema inside the brain.
In the 23 successful cases, the PM and CR values in the two groups were highly related. Results indicated that, even when using only two sets of non-contrasted MR images.

The hypothesis is that dynamic. Non-contrast 3D time-of-flight magnetic resonance angiography for visualization of intracranial aneurysms in patients with absolute contraindications to CT or MRI contrast.
The preoperative evaluation of patients with intracranial aneurysms typically includes a contrast-enhanced vascular study, such as computed tomography angiography CTAmagnetic resonance angiography MRAor digital subtraction angiography. However, there are numerous absolute and relative contraindications to the administration of imaging contrast agents, including pregnancy, severe contrast allergy, and renal insufficiency. Evaluation of patients with contrast contraindications thus presents a unique challenge.
We identified three patients with absolute contrast contraindications who presented with intracranial aneurysms. One patient was pregnant, while the other two had previous severe anaphylactic reactions to iodinated contrast.
Because of these contraindications to intravenous contrast, we performed non-contrast time-of-flight MRA with 3D reconstruction TOF MRA with 3DR with maximum intensity projections mnmeonics volume renderings as part of the preoperative evaluation prior to successful open surgical clipping of the aneurysms. In the case of one paraclinoid aneurysm, a khalld resolution non-contrast CT scan was also performed to assess the relationship of the aneurysm to the anterior clinoid process.
Intraoperative findings were as predicted by the preoperative khwlid studies. The aneurysms were successfully clip-obliterated, and the patients had uneventful post-operative courses. These cases demonstrate that non-contrast imaging is a viable modality to assess intracranial aneurysms as part of the surgical planning process in patients with contrast contraindications.
TOF MRA with 3DR, in conjunction with high- resolution non-contrast CT when indicated, provides adequate visualization of the microanatomy of the aneurysm and surrounding structures.
MRI of articular cartilage at microscopic resolution. The article has four major sections. These factors include image resolutionimage analysis strategies, visualisation of the total tissue, topographical variations of the tissue properties, surface fibril ambiguity, deformation of the articular cartilage, and cartilage lesion. The final section justifies the values of multidisciplinary imaging that correlates MRI with other technical modalities, such as optical imaging. Rather than an exhaustive review to capture all activities in the literature, the studies cited in this review are merely illustrative.

In the normal kidney, noncontrast -enhanced SSFP MRI with spatially selective IR pulse can be used to assess renal corticomedullary differentiation and cortical thickness without the influence of aging, although optimal TI values for the best visualization of renal corticomedullary junction were shortened with aging.
High- resolution MRI in detecting subareolar breast abscess.
Because subareolar breast abscess has a high recurrence rate, a more effective imaging technique is needed to comprehensively visualize the lesions and guide surgery. We performed a high- resolution MRI technique using a microscopy coil to reveal the characteristics and extent of subareolar breast mnnemonics.
High- resolution MRI has potential diagnostic value in subareolar breast abscess. This technique can be used to guide surgery with the aim of reducing the recurrence rate. Noncontrast Magnetic Resonance Lymphography. Different imaging techniques have been used for the investigation of the lymphatic channels and lymph glands. Noncontrast magnetic resonance MR lymphography has significant advantages in comparison with other imaging modalities. Noncontrast MR lymphography uses very heavily T2-weighted fast spin echo sequences which obtain a nearly complete signal loss in tissue background and specific display of lymphatic vessels with a long T2 relaxation time.
The raw data can be processed with different algorithms such as maximum intensity projection algorithm to obtain an anatomic representation.
Standard T2-weighted MR images easily demonstrate the location of edema. It appears as subcutaneous infiltration of soft tissue with a classical honeycomb pattern. True collection around the muscular area may be demonstrated in case of severe lymphedema.
Lymph nodes may be normal in size, number, and signal intensity; in other cases, lymph nodes may be smaller in size or number of lymph nodes may be restricted. MR lymphography allows a classification of lymphedema in aplasia no collecting vessels demonstrated ; hypoplasia a small number of lymphatic vesselsand numerical hyperplasia or hyperplasia with an increased number of lymphatic vessels of greater and abnormal diameter.
Noncontrast MR lymphography is a unique noninvasive imaging modality for the diagnosis of lymphedema. It can be used for positive diagnosis, differential diagnosis, and specific evaluation of lymphedema severity. It may also be used for follow-up evaluation after treatment.
Detailed information on anatomy and hemodynamics in cerebrovascular disorders such as AVM and Moyamoya disease is mandatory for defined diagnosis and treatment planning. Arterial spin labeling technique has come to be applied to magnetic resonance angiography MRA and perfusion imaging in recent years. However, those non-contrast techniques are mostly limited to single frame images.
Recently we have proposed a non-contrast time-resolved MRA technique termed contrast inherent inflow enhanced multi phase angiography combining spatial resolution echo planar imaging based signal targeting and alternating radiofrequency CINEMA-STAR. CINEMA-STAR can extract the blood flow in the major intracranial arteries at an interval of 70 ms and thus permits us to observe vascular construction in full by preparing MIP images of axial acquisitions with high spatial resolution.
A randomly undersampled variable density spiral trajectory enabling an acceleration factor of 5. A modified k-t SPARSE method was then implemented and applied with a strategy to optimize regularization parameters for consistent, high quality CS reconstruction. The proposed method is robust to physiological noise and enables detection of layer-specific activities in vivo, which cannot be resolved using the highest spatial resolution Nyquist acquisition.
The proposed method enables high spatial resolution f MRI that can resolve layer-specific brain activity and demonstrates the significant improvement that CS can bring to high spatial resolution f MRI.
