Multiple myeloma

  Clinical History: 56-year old woman with right leg pain for 10 months   Diagnosis: Multiple myeloma   MR Technique: Imaging of the right lower extremity was performed on a 3T MR system. (A) Coronal T2-weighted TIRM (TR/TE 3000/38ms), (B) sagittal T2-weighted TIRM (TR/TE 3000/38), (C) axial T1-weighted TSE, and (D) axial T2-weighted TSE with […] [...]

MAGNETOM Aera – Combining Throughput and Highest Quality MR Angiography in an Optimized Clinical Workflow

This paper shows how the simultaneous use of multipurpose loop coils in MRI allows high-resolution musculoskeletal studies with increased contrast and specificity for assessing muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints, and cartilage. Dr. Ferrer presents a number of different daily patient routine examinations, including specifically evaluation of the carpal bones, the thumb metacarpals, the metacarpals, the distal inter-phalangeal joints, the elbow and ankle.

Multiple Arterial Stenoses

This 63-year-old man presented with a longstanding history of peripheral arterial occlusive disease, hypertension, diabetes, coronary artery disease, prior myocardial infarction, crossover bypass, and renal artery stenosis with increasing leg pain. [...]

Dilatative Arteriopathy

This 76-year-old man presented for diagnostic angiography with a longstanding history of dilatative and occlusive arteriopathy, hypertension, coronary artery disease and a popliteal aneurysm. Clinically an occlusion of the femoral-popliteal bypass to the right PIII segment was known. [...]

An Overview of Imaging Techniques for the Carotid Bifurcation

Because it has been proven that there is a link between the development of nephrogenic systemic fibrosis (NSF) and the application of high volumes of magnetic resonance (MR) contrast agents in patients with impaired renal function, interest in non-contrast-enhanced techniques for MR angiography has experienced a renaissance. This set of images presents 5 different techniques for imaging the carotid bifurcation, one of the most critical and commonly diseased vascular regions within the entire arterial system. Except one (D), for best comparability, all exams were acquired with the same spatial resolution of 0.9 x 0.9 x 0.9 mm3 at 3 T (Magnetom Verio, Siemens Medical Solutions). [...]

Contrast Enhanced MRA of a Pelvic Arteriovenous Malformation

This 43-year-old woman presented to the angiography department three years ago with pain in the lower abdomen. She underwent resection of an intrauterine fibroma in 1997 and a C-section in 2002. In September 2005, the question was raised regarding a possible malformation of iliac vessels on the left side. [...]

Arteriovenous Malformation

This 43-year-old female presented to clinic with a severe headache and neck neck pain for the last two weeks. This was associated with intermittent mental status changes. [...]

Continuous table movement MRA for diagnosis of generalized atherosclerotic disease

This 48 year old woman presented to the department of vascular surgery due to recurrent pain in both legs. She suffers from hypertension, hyperlipidemia and coronary artery disease. She has previously been diagnosed with a high-grade stenosis of the right internal carotid artery and occlusion of the left internal carotid artery, andis as well status post dilatation and stenting of the circumflex coronary artery. Additional relevant vascular disease and surgery include occlusion of the right subclavian artery, aortobifemoral bypass grafting due to high-grade stenosis, and occlusion of the common, external and internal iliac arteries on both sides.
