European Autonomy in Space

The quantity offers analyses and reviews of the ongoing significance of Europe’s autonomy in its entry to house as a key driving force within the improvement of eu house services. From a close ancient research of a few of the pitfalls of dependence within the house undefined, specialists examine the entire diversity of present ecu area services and determine parts the place autonomy is either attainable and required, even in a scenario of critical budgetary constraints.

1 988), which allowed lH imaging and 31p MRS without repositioning of the patient and ubiquitous positioning of the VOl. Subsequently a series of patients with gliomas (n= 6) and meningiomas (n = 3) has been examined following a standardized protocol. Only tumors with an extension of more than 4 x 4 cm in plane and 4 cm in the orthogonal plane and with a homogeneous consistution on MRI were selected. The patients were positioned within the crossed Helmholtz coil. Shimming was performed using the linear gradients.

A. Tucker (Durham, NC, USA) The purpose of this study is the evaluation of clinical utility of phosphorous chemical shift imaging (31P CSI) of neoplastic disease. The current role of 31P CSI can be considered twofold, the differentiation of tumor from non-tumor in diagnosis and the evaluation of neoplastic therapy by serial monitoring of localized 31P information from neoplastic lesions. 5 Tesla on a clinical magnetic resonance spectrometer (SIGNA) using pulse sequences supplied by the manufacturer or written by one of the authors using pulse programming software provided by the manufacturer.

The high tracer accumulation is mediated by increased transport via the vascular barrier (BBB). Provided the BBB is not grossly disrupted, this transport can be modified by competition with other amino acids, and is stereospecific, as in normal brain (Bergstrom et al 1987 a,b). The increased uptake also reflects enhanced protein synthesis, and addi tionally, to a lesser extent, metabolism or increased amino acid pools, as indicated in recent laboratory studies (Bustany et al 1986; Ishiwata et al 1988).
