Comparing 1.5T vs 3T MRI systems identifies in a number of differences:
increased signal to noise ratio (SNR)
increased spatial resolution
increased temporal resolution
increased specific absorption rate (SAR)
increased acoustic noise
Signal to noise ratio
Theoretically, signal is proport...
14-3-3 protein is found in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), and is currently used to help identify patients with sporadic Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (sCJD).
In diagnosing sCJD, the sensitivity of 14-3-3 protein is 92% and the specificity is 80% 1. A negative 14-3-3 assay may be helpful in reducin...
17 segment model recommended by American Heart Association (AHA) divides the left ventricle wall into 17 segments to study the wall function and myocardial perfusion.
segment 1: basal anterior
segment 2: basal anteroseptal
segment 3: basal inferoseptal
segment 4: basal infer...
18q syndrome is a rare chromosomal anomaly where there is deletion of part of the long arm of chromosome 18. Associated symptoms and findings vary widely, as does their severity. Characteristic features include short stature, mental retardation and hypotonia, facial and distal skeletal abnorma...
1p19q codeletion stands for the combined loss of the short arm chromosome 1 (“1p”) and the long arm of chromosome 19 (“19q”) and is recognised as genetic marker predictive of therapeutic response (both chemotherapy and combined chemoradiotherapy) and overall longer survival in patients with diff...
