Summary of "Anatomical location of the vertebrobasilar junction: computed tomography morphometrics for planning endoscopic transsphenoidal transclival approaches."

The aim of this study was to determine the anatomical localization and morphometry of VBJ by Computed tomography (CT) images which may be helpful in planning the correct procedure before surgery such as endoscopic transsphenoidal transclival approach to the retroclival space.

Relation of infarction location and volume to vertigo in vertebrobasilar stroke.

Vertigo is a common presentation of vertebrobasilar stroke. Anecdotal reports have shown that vertigo occurs more often in multiple than in single brainstem or cerebellar infarctions. We examined the ...

Utility of Preoperative Multidetector-row Computed Tomography Angiography after Sublingual Nitroglycerin with Three-dimensional Reconstruction in Planning of the Anterolateral Thigh Flap.

Utility of nitroglycerin is well-established in coronary angiography but less so in other surgical fields. Here, we studied the utility of preoperative computed tomography angiography after sublingual...

Computed Tomography Angiography Combined With Knowledge-Based Iterative Algorithm for Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation Planning: Image Quality and Radiation Dose Exposure With Low-kV and Low-Contrast-Medium Protocol.

Anatomical evaluation of the craniovertebral junction on cone-beam computed tomography images.

There are many craniometric measurements that are used in evaluating craniovertebral junction (CVJ) pathologies such as basilar invagination, atlantoaxial dislocation and platybasia. Therefore, it is ...

Persistent Trigeminal Artery: Neuroanatomical and Clinical Relevance.

Persistent trigeminal artery (PTA) is the most common remnant of primitive circulation communicating the developing carotid and vertebrobasilar junction. Although discovered incidentally, an altered h...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An imaging technique using a device which combines TOMOGRAPHY, EMISSION-COMPUTED, SINGLE-PHOTON and TOMOGRAPHY, X-RAY COMPUTED in the same session.

Computed tomography where there is continuous X-ray exposure to the patient while being transported in a spiral or helical pattern through the beam of irradiation. This provides improved three-dimensional contrast and spatial resolution compared to conventional computed tomography, where data is obtained and computed from individual sequential exposures.

Computed tomography modalities which use a cone or pyramid-shaped beam of radiation.

Tomography using x-ray transmission and a computer algorithm to reconstruct the image.

Tomography using radioactive emissions from injected RADIONUCLIDES and computer ALGORITHMS to reconstruct an image.
