Intracranial meningiomas may be amenable to presurgical embolization to reduce bleeding complications. Detailed information usually obtained by digital subtraction angiography (DSA) on the contribution of blood supply from internal and external carotid artery branches is required to prevent non-target embolization and is helpful for pre-surgical planning.

Indocyanine Green (ICG) videoangiography can assess cerebral bloodflow, but results are primarily qualitative. FLOW 800 software measures fluorescence dynamics and creates a semiquantitative color del...
Increased intracranial pressure (ICP) in hypoxic ischaemic brain injury (HIBI) can cause secondary ischaemic brain injury and culminate in brain death. Invasive ICP monitoring is limited by associated...
To evaluate CF800, a novel lipid-based liposomal nanoparticle that co-encapsulates indocyanine green (ICG) and iohexol, for CT imaging of pulmonary vasculature in minimally-invasive thoracic surgery p...
Contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is commonly used to evaluate temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disease in patients with juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA). However, MRI assessments hav...
Intracranial vascular infections of fungal etiology are extremely rare. The vast majority of cases occur in immunocompromised patients with invasive fungal disease, most commonly originating in the pa...
For purposes of validation, this study compares intracranial pressure measurements obtained with a novel self-calibrating, non-invasive, intracranial pressure measuring (ICP) device, with ...
Acute or chronic liver failure (fulminant hepatitis or advanced cirrhosis) disrupts brain physiology. Beyond classical hepatic encephalopathy, intracranial hypertension may occur.During li...
COPD patients requiring ventilation may benefit from invasive or non invasive ventilation. Non invasive ventilation is often incompatible with oral or enteral feding, due to gastric dilata...
The purpose of this study is to estimate the intracranial pressure (ICP, the pressure in your head) in subjects with intracranial hypotension (a condition caused by leakage of the fluid th...
Increased intracranial pressure is a cause of disease progression in patients with brain disease, a common cause of poor prognosis. Intracranial pressure monitoring is the observation of t...
A gamma-emitting radionuclide imaging agent used in the evaluation of regional cerebral blood flow and in non-invasive dynamic biodistribution studies and myocardial imaging. It has also been used to label leukocytes in the investigation of inflammatory bowel diseases.
Nutritional support given via the alimentary canal or any route connected to the gastrointestinal system (i.e., the enteral route). This includes oral feeding, sip feeding, and tube feeding using nasogastric, gastrostomy, and jejunostomy tubes.
Use of nursing bottles for feeding. Applies to humans and animals.
Lung infections with the invasive forms of ASPERGILLUS, usually after surgery, transplantation, prolonged NEUTROPENIA or treatment with high-doses of CORTICOSTEROIDS. Invasive pulmonary aspergillosis can progress to CHRONIC NECROTIZING PULMONARY ASPERGILLOSIS or hematogenous spread to other organs.
A group of pathological conditions characterized by sudden, non-convulsive loss of neurological function due to BRAIN ISCHEMIA or INTRACRANIAL HEMORRHAGES. Stroke is classified by the type of tissue NECROSIS, such as the anatomic location, vasculature involved, etiology, age of the affected individual, and hemorrhagic vs. non-hemorrhagic nature.

Radiology is the branch of medicine that studies imaging of the body; X-ray (basic, angiography, barium swallows), ultrasound, MRI, CT and PET. These imaging techniques can be used to diagnose, but also to treat a range of conditions, by allowing visuali...
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
