ABSTRACT
We report a case of mixed gonadal dysgenesis in which diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging played a major role in the detection of ectopically located gonads. Magnetic resonance imaging may have a potential in detecting ectopically located gonads and may provide important information for the management of patients with mixed gonadal dysgenesis.

    Numerous studies with functional magnetic resonance imaging have shown that the fusiform face area (FFA) in the human brain plays a key role in face perception. Recent studies have found that both the featural information of faces (e.g., eyes, nose, and mouth) and the configural information of...

    Magnetic resonance imaging has been widely used for medical diagnosis in recent years. The knowledge of the proton spin-lattice relaxation time, T1, represents the basis for NMR imaging. In the present study, we measured T1 in saliva, gingival fluid, gingival blood, and inflamed gingiva by means...

    We report a fatal dissection of the descending aorta as a complication after a two-staged implantation of a stent to relieve aortic coarctation in a young female with Turner's syndrome. Implantation of the stent, with dilation up to 70 percent, and half a year later re-dilation to 100 percent,...
