[Problems and chances of high field magnetic resonance imaging].
Abstract CLINICAL/METHODICAL ISSUE: The spatial, temporal and spectral resolution in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is in many cases currently not sufficient to detect submillimeter lesions or to image the dynamics of the beating heart. STANDARD RADIOLOGICAL METHODS: At present MRI systems at 1.5 T and 3 T are the standard units for clinical imaging. METHODICAL INNOVATIONS: The use of ultrahigh magnetic fields of 7 T and higher increases the signal-to-noise ratio, which holds promise for a significant improvement of the spatial and/or temporal resolution as well as for new contrast mechanisms. PER...

[Neurofunctional MRI at high magnetic fields].
Abstract CLINICAL/METHODICAL ISSUE: Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) examinations are limited in their sensitivity due to the low activation-induced signal change. Within short tolerable scan times the spatial resolution is thus limited. STANDARD RADIOLOGICAL METHODS: fMRI is a reliable tool in neuroscience as well as for clinical applications such as presurgical mapping of brain function. METHODICAL INNOVATIONS: The fMRI sensitivity improves greatly (more than linearly) with increasing magnetic field strengths. For many years this was the main driving force in the push towards higher field strengths, ...

[Application of ultrahigh-field MRI in neuro-oncology].
Abstract The introduction of high-field magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) into neuro-oncological imaging allows improved visualization of tumor structures even in the field of T1 and T2-weighted imaging. Susceptibility-weighted imaging (SWI) and time of flight (TOF) angiography in particular greatly benefit from the high field strength. The visualization of tumor vasculature in MRI, which was made possible by high-field technology can potentially be applied to monitoring antiangiogenic therapy. Cerebral metastases can potentially be discovered earlier using high-field technology. Furthermore, high-field technology ...

[Working in the magnetic field of ultrahigh field MRI].
Abstract Development of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) device technology continues to increase the static magnetic flux densities applied and consequently leads to considerably increased occupational exposure. This has already made it necessary to review limits of occupational exposure and to postpone European legal regulations for occupational exposure to electromagnetic fields. This raises the question whether and if so which adverse health effects and health risks might be associated with occupational exposure to MRI ultra-high static magnetic fields. Based on a survey on interaction mechanisms recommendation...

[Contrast in static images in clinical magnetic resonance imaging : Part 1: Contrast properties of tissue].
Abstract In comparison to roentgen-based radiological examination techniques, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) provides a wide variety of tissue contrast. This can be utilized for better detection and characterization of pathological findings. The basis of image contrast in MRI is the chemical and physical properties of the hydrogen atoms in tissue, in particular in their chemical bonds in water and lipid molecules and in the environment in which the hydrogen-containing molecules are contained. This environment is mainly determined by the composition of substances, viscosity and temperature as well as the microsco...

r T Abstract The radiology report plays a key role in the radiological procedure and is used both for documentation of internal procedures as well as in a variety of communication processes within and outside the radiology department. Due to the various communication processes the question arises whether and how the report should be structured. The first stage of such a structured report implies a thematic structure only. This corresponds to the current practice in Germany whereby the reports are structured according to the X-ray act. In the second stage a structure of the contents is added, which is usually imple...

Abstract Oncologic imaging includes the morphological description of the primary tumor region for an accurate classification of the tumor and lymph node stage and whether distant metastases have occurred according to the TNM staging system. Knowing the stage of the disease helps to plan the treatment and to estimate the prognosis. In clinical routine this is accomplished by conventional imaging techniques, such as ultrasound (US), computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Additionally, oncologic imaging is essential in treatment monitoring to visualize and quantify the effect of cancer therapy...

Abstract Cross-sectional imaging techniques, such as computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and positron emission tomography (PET) CT are an integral part of the modern oncological workup. They are used for tumor detection and staging as well as for treatment evaluation and monitoring. Due to pathophysiological and histological differences there is no universal imaging protocol for the assessment of different forms of cancer. For instance, CT is still the standard technique for the detection and staging of lung cancer supplemented by PET which aids the exclusion of nodal involvement and the de...

[Imaging diagnostics of hyperparathyroidism].
Abstract Primary hyperparathyroidism is diagnosed by the presence of hypercalcemia, hypercalciuria and elevated serum levels of parathyroid hormone and is treated surgically by removal of the enlarged gland. Both ultrasound and 99m-Tc-MIBI scintigraphy are used to localize enlarged parathyroid glands. With sonography, enlarged parathyroid glands are hypoechoic and are most frequently found dorsally or caudally to the thyroid and medially to the carotid arteries. Ectopic parathyroid glands in the mediastinum can be detected by scintigraphy only. Computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging are not primarily i...

Abstract Acquired central nervous system (CNS) lesions are often subtle; therefore, the prenatal diagnosis of these lesions is extremely important. The fetal ultrasound examination and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) are two important imaging methods that give an insight into these types lesions. The method of choice during pregnancy is still fetal ultrasound; however, fetal MRI is important when there are certain pathologies, e.g. periventricular leukomalacia (PVL) or malformations of the vein of Galen. In this manner clinicians can plan further therapy after childbirth in advance (e.g. cerebral angiography or e...

Abstract In the last decade the newest technologies, fetal magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and 3D ultrasound, have given an insight into the minute structures of the fetal brain. However, without knowledge of the basic developmental processes the imaging is futile. Knowledge of fetal neuroanatomy corresponding to the gestational week is necessary in order to recognize pathological structures. Furthermore, a modern neuroradiologist should be acquainted with the three steps in the formation of the cerebral cortex: proliferation, migration and differentiation of neurons in order to be in a position to suspect that t...
