MaguireSegmenting subregions of the human hippocampus on structural magnetic resonance image scans: An illustrated tutorialBrain and Neuroscience AdvancesFirst published date: April-06-201710.1177/2398212817701448 A snippet from the Abstract -" The hippocampus plays a central role in cognition, and understanding the specific contributions of its subregions will likely be key to explaining its wide-ranging functions. However, delineating substructures within the human hippocampus in vivo from magnetic resonance image scans is fraught with difficulties. To our knowledge, the extant literature contains only brief descriptions of segmentation procedures used to delineate hippocampal subregions in magnetic resonance imaging/functional magnetic resonance imaging studies.

This article gives an overview of the current results of PET with radiolabelled amino acids in therapy monitoring of standard therapy as well as various innovative approaches in the treatment of patients with cerebral gliomas.Expert opinion: Amino acid PET has proven to be helpful in therapy monitoring of gliomas, the costs are low in relation to the costs of therapy and the clinical benefit, and a widespread clinical use is highly desirable.

Conclusion: The 3D finite element model based on 3D finite element software was highly efficient, and its numerical simulation was accurate, which was important for the subsequent biomechanical analysis of PVCR orthopaedy. In addition, the vertebral stress of PVCR orthopaedy was different in each body part, which was mainly affected by the applied orthodontic force and the sites of the orthodontic area.

Conclusion: Results for quantitative evaluation were similar in both the sequences. Gadolinium injection can be avoided only in surveillance studies.

Conclusion: The development of LRSS pneumatization affects the removal rate of CS tumors in PAs. Preoperative analysis of LRSS development should be considered when planning EES against PA with CS invasion. PMID: 31819816 [PubMed]

We describe an extremely rare case of SFT in the left preauricular region. The tumor lesion had gradually grown without pain or facial paralysis. Magnetic resonance imaging scan showed a circumscribed mass with high signal intensity on Gd-DTPA-enhanced T1-weighted images measuring approximately 3.0 cm in diameter. The tumor lesion was excised completely. Histological examination of the surgical specimen revealed proliferation of spindle tumor cells with a patternless pattern. Various amounts of collagen bundles intervened in the spindle tumor cells. The cellular atypia of the tumor cells was weak. Immunohistochemical studi...

Publication date: Available online 11 December 2019Source: NeuroImageAuthor(s): Kenneth Wengler, Xiang He, Anissa Abi-Dargham, Guillermo HorgaAbstractNeuromelanin-sensitive MRI (NM-MRI) provides a noninvasive measure of the content of neuromelanin (NM), a product of dopamine metabolism that accumulates with age in dopamine neurons of the substantia nigra (SN). NM-MRI has been validated as a measure of both dopamine neuron loss, with applications in neurodegenerative disease, and dopamine function, with applications in psychiatric disease. Furthermore, a voxelwise-analysis approach has been validated to resolve substructure...

Thomas Yeo, César Caballero-Gaudes, Dimitri Van De VilleAbstractThe impact of in-scanner motion on functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) data has a notorious reputation in the neuroimaging community. State-of-the-art guidelines advise to scrub out excessively corrupted frames as assessed by a composite framewise displacement (FD) score, to regress out models of nuisance variables, and to include average FD as a covariate in group-level analys...

ConclusionsOur data suggest that the investigated brain tumors had an intact BBTB, which is impermeable to anticancer drugs, which are dual ABCB1/ABCG2 substrates. Therefore, effective drugs for antitumor treatment should have high passive permeability and lack ABCB1/ABCG2 substrate affinity.Trial registrationEuropean Union Drug Regulating Authorities Clinical Trials Database (EUDRACT), 2011-004189-13.

Abstract PURPOSE: To provide evidence-based recommendations to practicing clinicians on radiographic imaging and biomarker surveillance strategies after definitive curative-intent therapy in patients with stage I-III non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and SCLC. METHODS: ASCO convened an Expert Panel of medical oncology, thoracic surgery, radiation oncology, pulmonary, radiology, primary care, and advocacy experts to conduct a literature search, which included systematic reviews, meta-analyses, randomized controlled trials, and prospective and retrospective comparative observational studies published from 2000...
