Comparison Between 3D Echocardiography and Cardiac Magnetic Resonance Imaging (CMRI) in the Measurement of Left Ventricular Volumes and Ejection Fraction.
Authors: Benameur N, Arous Y, Ben Abdallah N, Kraiem T Abstract BACKGROUND: Echocardiography and Cardiac Magnetic Resonance Imaging (CMRI) are two noninvasive techniques for the evaluation of cardiac function for patients with coronary artery diseases. Although echocardiography is the commonly used technique in clinical practice for the assessment of cardiac function, the measurement of LV volumes and left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) by the use of this technique is still influenced by several factors inherent to the protocol acquisition, which may affect the accuracy of echocardiography in the measurement ...

Correlation Between DTI Findings and Volume of Corpus Callosum in Children with AUTISM.
CONCLUSION: The conclusions in the interrelations of morphometric and DTI data may demonstrate a likelihood of damages in the axons and cortical neurons. The results showed that there existed microstructural damages from the DTI findings. Furthermore, the decrease in FA could be a representation of the reduction in the myelination in nerve pathways, impaired integrity, reduced axonal density, and organization. Indeed, the changes in volumetric and microstructural of CC could be useful in evaluating underlying pathophysiology in children with autism.
