- Sturge-Weber syndrome with no leptomeningeal enhancement on MRIN J Fischbein
Neuroradiology 40:177-80. 1998..We present a case of SWS with no evidence of leptomeningeal enhancement. This case illustrates that leptomeningeal enhancement need not be present in SWS, and the absence of this characteristic finding does not preclude the diagnosis...
- Endoscopic third ventriculocisternostomy: MR assessment of patency with 2-D cine phase-contrast versus T2-weighted fast spin echo techniqueN J Fischbein
Department of Radiology, University of California at San Francisco, USA
Pediatr Neurosurg 28:70-8. 1998..To determine if fast spin-echo T2 (FSE) is of equal value to flow-sensitive 2D cine phase-contrast (CPC) to assess patency of endoscopic third ventriculocisternostomies (VC)...
- The "presyrinx" state: is there a reversible myelopathic condition that may precede syringomyelia?N J Fischbein
Department of Radiology, University of California, San Francisco, California 94143 0628, USA
Neurosurg Focus 8:E4. 2000..We hypothesize that a "presyrinx" condition due to potentially reversible alteration in normal CSF flow exists and that its appearance may be due to variations in the competence of the central canal of the spinal cord...
