Role of magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) in nonlesional temporal lobe epilepsy
Conclusion MR spectroscopy is a very sensitive guiding tool in predicting the temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE) and the side of involvement in patients with TLE even in patients with MR negative studies. It helps in detecting abnormal spectra of various brain metabolites. MR spectroscopy has demonstrated consistent metabolic abnormalities in partial seizures. MRS can also detect bilateral affection with the ipsilateral side more affected. (Source: The Egyptian Journal of Radiology and Nuclear Medicine)

Estimation of frequency and pretest probability of CAD in patients presenting with recent onset chest pain by multi-detector CT angiography
Conclusion CAD was seen in 77.5% in those with recent onset chest pain. Higher incidence of significant CAD was seen in hypertensive and diabetic patients. Family history is still not a reliable factor in our society. Male patient <60years old has higher incidence of CAD than female in same age group. Pretest probability for CAD is a simple and important test as all patients in higher probability have CAD and most of them have significant disease so it is better to direct referral of them to conventional angiography to gain a benefit from direct intervention, radiation and cost benefit.

Usefulness of diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging for the characterization of benign and malignant renal lesions
Conclusion There is overlap between the ADC values of benign and malignant lesions. The use of ADC value alone may lead to inaccurate assessment of renal lesions. Thus, DW-MRI should be interpreted in conjunction with conventional MRI sequences to allow for better characterization of renal lesions.
