Weight-Height scale: A valid and reliable weight -height scale, with a range of 1 to 150 kilograms weight, and 1 to 200 centimeters height was used to measure the relevant subject's data. 3. Siemens Immulite Immunoassay System: (Siemens Medical Solutions Diagnosti...
Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is the fifth most common cancer in terms of incidence and the second in terms of mortality. At an early stage, which is based on a low number and size of liver nodules and the absence of extra-hepatic locations (Milan criteria), a curative treatment can be performed, i.e. liver transplantation, surgical resection, or thermo-ablation. These treatments can lead to severe complications, so patients benefiting from them must be carefully selected. The...
Female participants with an episode of late-life depression (LLD) and age-matched control participants with no history of mental disorder will attend a one hour Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). A 3 Tesla MRI scanner will be used to measure levels of glutathione (GSH) in the brain via magnetic resonance spectroscopy (1H MRS).
In this study, investigators want to compare the accuracy of two methods to measure renal perfusion by MRI spin labelling technique: the first measurement done with the 1.5 T MRI versus the second one obtained with the 3.0 T MRI (Siemens MRI device).
The primary purpose of this study is to explore the underlying mechanisms that link sleep to Alzheimer's disease (AD), with special focus on the clearance of metabolites in the extracellular space of the brain during sleep. Subjects will wear an actigraph for 1 week to determine regular daytime activity and sleep patterns. Subjects will then undergo partial sleep deprivation followed by 4 hours of in-lab nocturnal polysomnography (NPSG). Participants will be be asked to stay aw...
The progress in surgery of the aortic root and the evolution of transcatheter aortic valve replacement as an alternative to surgical treatment in selected patients have refocused the need for quantitative imaging of the aortic root during transcatheter aortic valve replacement and valve-sparing aortic root surgery. In this study, we aim to assess the ability of semi-automated quantitative modeling (eSie Valves, Autovalve prototype version, Siemens Medical Solutions, USA) of the...
In this prospective study different methods of haemoglobin measurement in term and preterm neonates are compared with the gold standard. Non-invasive haemoglobin measurement with the Radical-7® (SpHb, Masimo®), point-of-care haemoglobin-measurement (HcHb, HemoCue@, Radiometer), blood-gas-analysis (BGAHb,ABL800®, Radiometer) are compared with haemoglobin measurement by an automated hematology analyzer (labHb, Siemens Advia®).
The main objective of the study is to explore and map brain areas involved in processing and perception in patients suffering from neurological pathologies and condition. The investigators hypothesize for example, that a change (compare to healthy subjects) in the perceptual maps and body representation could be detected and characterize in patients suffering from impairments of peripheral nerve conduction.
Amniotic fluid (AF) pH can be affected by the maternal and/or fetal conditions such as PPROM, prematurity or fetal distress. It is known that fetal urine is the major content of AF since 20th gestational week. Besides fetal alveolar fluid (FAF), gastrointestinal tract, umbilical cord and fetal side of placenta are important sources for AF. Bombesin-like peptides, 8-hydroxydeoxyguanosine in fetal urine and leukotriene E(4), lecithin, sphingomyelin, lamellar body in FAF are molec...
All women had normal uterine cavity determined by previous hysterosalpingography or hysteroscopy. Women with abnormally low Gn as hypothalamic hypogonadism , High LH as PCOS and women with abnormal endocrine functions as abnormal thyroid or adrenal functions were excluded. Any woman with ovarian cyst or azopermic male partner was also excluded. The patients were subjected to history taking, including age, duration, type and cause of infertility and medical history.

Coronary CT angiography is used to examine the coronary arteries in a non-invasive way when a patient is suspected of having coronary artery disease. The test, however, requires relatively high levels of radiation, which have been linked to DNA damage and cancer, and the use of contrast material, which can affect kidney function. The SOMATOM Force, a new third-generation CT scanner manufactured by Siemens, was recently installed at MUSC and holds the potential to obtain quality...
All images in this study were acquired on a 1.5 T Sonata whole body scanner (Siemens Medical Inc., Erlangen, Germany) using 2D multi-echo gradient echo/spin echo sequence and 2D single-shot gradient echo-planar imaging sequence plus intravenous magnetic susceptibility contrast medium.
