Diffusion-weighted MRI in cyclosporin A neurotoxicity for the classification of cerebral edema.
Journal - European radiology (GERMANY )
Cyclosporin A, an immunosuppressive agent, is known to have neurotoxic effects, but until now, there has not been agreement on the underlying mechanism. Our report suggests, by using diffusion-weighted MRI, that the brain lesions caused by cyclosporin A, are probably related to vasogenic edema. This may explain the complete recovery of the lesions on imaging when cyclosporine therapy is stopped.

MRI of extrapancreatic gastrinomas.
Journal - Journal belge de radiologie (BELGIUM )
Preoperative diagnosis of gastrinoma--especially extrapancreatic gastrinoma--is very difficult. At the moment octreotide scintigraphy is considered the method of choice to detect gastrinomas. However, MRI may play a major role in the diagnostic imaging of gastrinoma.
