    ABSTRACT: To investigate the correlation between the alterations of single-voxel (1)H MRS and the histopathological characteristics of radiation brain injury following radiation. Twenty-seven rabbits were randomized into nine groups to receive radiation with a single dose of 25Gy. The observation time points included a pre-radiation and 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8wk following radiation. Each treatment group underwent conventional MRI and single-voxel (1)H MRS, N-acetyl aspartate (NAA), choline (Cho), and creatine (Cr) were observed over the region of interest, and the presence or absence of lactate (Lac) and lipid (Lip) was detected. Histological specimens of each group were obtained after image acquisition. The values of Cho were significantly increased in the first 3wk, and decreased over the following 5wk after radiation. Levels of NAA showed a trend toward a decrease 5wk after radiation. The levels of Cr were not changed between before and after radiation. The Cho/NAA metabolic ratio was significantly increased in weeks 6, 7, and 8 following irradiation, compared to pre-radiation values. Vascular and glial injury appeared on 2wk after RT in the histology samples, until 4wk after RT, necrosis of the oligodendrocytes, neuronal degeneration and demyelination could be observed. MRS is sensitive to detect metabolic changes following radiation, and can be used in the early diagnosis of radiation brain injury.

    ABSTRACT: Previous studies showed that EGR3 gene located in chromosome 8p21.3 was involved in the etiology of schizophrenia. However, the finding failed to be replicated in several case-control studies. To investigate the genetic role of the EGR3 gene in Chinese psychiatric patients, we genotyped five single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in EGR3 gene locus using 93 nuclear families in Han Chinese, and performed transmission disequilibrium test (TDT). In this study, two SNPs (rs1996147 and rs3750192) showed significant association with schizophrenia (c2>4.40, P<0.05). In the linkage disequilibrium analysis, the significant association was also found in two- (rs3750192-rs35201266), three- (rs1877670- rs3750192-rs7009708) and four-SNP (rs1996147-rs1877670-rs3750192-rs7009708) tests of haplotype analyses (c2>7.10, global P<0.05). Overall, the results suggested that EGR3 gene may play an important role in schizophrenia susceptibility in the Han Chinese population, and further functional exploration of the EGR3 gene will contribute to the underlying molecular mechanism for schizophrenia pathogenesis.

    ABSTRACT: To study the association between the single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in FXYD6 gene and schizophrenia in a family-trios population. Six SNPs (rs10790212, rs11544201, rs555577, rs1815774, rs4938446 and rs497768) in the FXYD6 gene were genotyped by allele-specific PCR method in 101 nuclear families, and transmission disequilibrium test (TDT) was performed. SNPs rs10790212 and rs11544201 showed significant association with schizophrenia (P<0.05). Furthermore, significant association of schizophrenia with the haplotype rs10790212-rs11544201 was found (P<0.05). FXYD6 gene might play an important role in schizophrenia susceptibility and functional analysis of FXYD6 are needed.

    ABSTRACT: To evaluate bony changes in the skull base after radiotherapy by computed tomography (CT) and their correlation with local recurrence in patients with nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) without previous involvement of the skull base. Retrospective study. Sun-Yat Sen University Cancer Center. The records of 80 patients with NPC during the period from January 1992 to December 2005 were reviewed. All patients had been treated with radical radiotherapy or chemoradiotherapy at standard doses and were followed up with plain and contrast-enhanced CT every 6 months for 45.5 (range 12-108) months. The types, areas, time of the first occurrence after radiotherapy and development of the postradiation bony changes of the skull base, and local recurrence rates of NPC were measured. Eighteen patients (22.5%) had sclerosis in some area of the skull base, and the sclerosis in 5 (27.8%) of these patients changed into osteoporosis in 1 to 5 years after its appearance. Seventeen patients (21.3%) had osteolysis. The local recurrence rate of patients with osteolysis was observed to be significantly higher than that of patients with sclerosis (p < .0001). The appearance of osteolytic changes in the skull base during follow-up of patients with NPC who had normal skull base morphology before treatment was associated with tumour recurrence.

    ABSTRACT: To summarize the CT and MRI features in a series of fifteen cases of Kimura's disease. The clinical data, CT and MRI findings of 15 patients with histologically proved Kimura's disease were retrospectively reviewed. All imaging data were consensually evaluated by two radiologists to determine the lesion location, number, morphology, margin, signal intensity or CT density, lesion texture, contrast enhancement pattern and involvement of adjacent structures. There were 14 male and 1 female, with peripheral blood eosinophilia in all 14 patients. 13 patients were presented with a painless mass. 13 patients had lesions located in the head and neck related to the major salivary glands. 1 patient had lesion in groin. Subcutaneous fat diffuse atrophy around the tumor site was found in 11 patients. 9 patients had solitary mass and 6 patients had multiple masses. Most masses were ill-defined, but no specific density or signal patterns were found. Most patients exhibited enlarged or obviously enhanced abnormal lymph nodes but without necrosis. The characteristic distribution, morphology with enlarged draining lymphadenopathy, combined with the clinical features and laboratory examination enables a confident preoperative diagnosis of Kimura's disease.

    ABSTRACT: To investigate the imaging features, clinical manifestations and pathological characteristics of solitary fibrous tumors (SFT). The clinicopathological manifestations and medical imaging findings were analyzed retrospectively in 27 patients with surgically confirmed SFT. The SFTs originated from different parts of the body, including 18 in the chest, 4 in the abdomen, 1 in the lumboscral area, 3 in the pelvis, and 1 in the left shoulder. Twenty-three cases were found by CT scan, among which there were 16 benign diseases, presented with well-defined round or elliptic margins, with homogeneous attenuation and clearly surrounding; 6 malignant cases with unclear demarcations, invasive surrounding, heterogeneous attenuation due to calcification and/or irregular necrosis, and 1 junctional case with well-defined margins, which was enlarged during follow-up. There were 4 SFTs scanned by MRI with clear margin and homogeneous or heterogeneous signal intensity. All of the 4 cases were isointense or hyperintense to muscle on T1-weighted images, and were hyperintense on the T2-weighted images. All tumors showed heterogeneously intense enhancement with geographic pattern. Immunohistochemical staining showed that CD34-positive was 81.5%, vimentin (100.0%), CD99 (100.0%) and bcl-2 (96.3%), as well as negative CK (100.0%) and S-100 (96.3%). The location of SFT is varying. Though its clinical manifestations vary, the diagnosis is depended on pathology and immunohistochemistry. There are certain specific features related to SFTs on CT or MRI. These imaging techniques may serve to provide helpful information as to the location and vicinal anatomic structure of the tumor, which is of substantial importance for planning surgery.

    ABSTRACT: The aim of this study was to evaluate the value of diffusion weighted imaging (DWI) in the diagnosis of patients with breast diseases. Fifty-three consecutive patients were scanned with GE signa HDx 1.5 T magnetic resonance system equipped with 8-channel breast coil. DWI was scanned by SE-EPI sequence in b values of 500 s/mm(2) and 800 s/mm(2), respectively. The apparent diffusion coefficients (ADC) of these lesions were measured. The mean apparent diffusion coefficients (ADC) of these lesions were calculated in b values of 500 s/mm(2) and 800 s/mm(2), respectively. These lesions' ADC value (rADC) was counted respectively and the result of the rADC was equal to the lesion's ADC divided by the ADC of the ipsilateral normal breast tissue. Threshold of ADC and rADC for differential diagnosis was acquired by ROC (receiver operating characteristic curve) analysis. Different imaging technologies were evaluated emphasizing their sensitivity, specificity and accuracy. Sixty-six lesions of 53 cases were confirmed by pathology, including 39 malignant lesions and 27 benign lesions. (1) b = 500 s/mm(2), the threshold of ADC value was 1.435 x 10(-3) mm(2)/s, with a sensitivity of 82.1% and a specificity of 81.5%. The threshold of rADC value was 0.62, with a sensitivity of 76.9% and a specificity of 100%. (2) b = 800 s/mm(2), the threshold of ADC value was 1.295 x 10(-3) mm(2)/s, with a sensitivity of 79.5% and a specificity of 81.5%. The threshold of rADC value was 0.71, with a sensitivity of 89.7% and specificity of 88.9%. (3) The area under the ROC curve was increased for the four diagnostic indicators (ADC(500), ADC(800), rADC(500), rADC(800)). DWI spends short time, and it doesn't need contrast material. ADC value and rADC value have a high sensitivity and specificity as a diagnostic indicator. DWI is helpful in improving the specificity of MR and may become one of valuable conventional procedures for breast tumor diagnosis.

    ABSTRACT: Gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST) is one of the most common mesenchymal tumors of the digestive system. Imaging examination plays an important role in preoperative diagnosis and postoperative evaluation for it. This study was to describe the multi-slice spiral computed tomographic (MSCT) findings and pathologic features of GIST, and to analyze their correlation. MSCT and pathologic reports of 49 patients with 53 pathologically confirmed GIST lesions were reviewed and compared. Of the 53 GIST lesions, 14 were at very low biological risk, 11 at low risk, ten at moderate risk and 18 at high risk; 36 (67.9%) were found in first visit by CT scans. On CT images, the GIST lesions with maximal diameter of > or =50 mm showed irregular shape, invasive growth, presence of cystic area and heterogeneous enhancement, and most of them were at high risk; the lesions with maximal diameter of <50 mm showed regular shape, expansive growth, and homogeneous enhancement, and most of them were at risk of moderate or below. No lymph node metastasis was found. Only three lesions showed S100-positive, which presented infiltration along the gastric wall or bowel ring on CT images. CT examination is helpful in risk prediction for GIST, but it is difficult to detect small lesions (< 2 cm) by CT scans. Due to the infiltrative growth of GIST with neural differentiation (S100-positive), it is difficult to distinguish GIST from gastric cancer on CT images.
