My Theses

  • M.S.C Thesis: Dural venous sinus thrombosis: value of cerebral (DSA) digital subtraction angiography versus (MRV) magnetic resonance venography. The thesis was a comparative study between DSA & MRV in diagnosis and grading of cerebral dural venous thrombosis due to medical or surgical causes. Patients were referred from neurology & neurosurgery departments and examined by both modalities. Conclusions were in favor of DSA which proved to remain the gold standard for diagnosis and grading, although MRV was promising.

  • M.D. Thesis: Recent imaging modalities in diagnosis of epilepsy: a functional MRI study. Magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS), diffusion (DWI) and perfusion (PI) weighted imaging techniques plus conventional MRI were used to examine epileptic patients of various etiologies during the interictal stage. The aim was to reveal the role of each functional modality in lateralization & localization of the epileptogenic focus if present, to guide for surgical interferences. Both DWI & PI were proved to be very sensitive during the early postictal stage up to 6 hours, while MRS was the most accurate in recording the cumulative biochemical changes over all stages.
