CONCLUSIONS: These results indicate that the CAIDE dementia risk score is associated with cortical thickness and cognitive function at midlife in a low-risk population. These data provide insight into subclinical structural and functional changes occurring during midlife associated with future risk for the development of dementia.

Authors: Delibasis Κ, Aronis C, Fanariotis M, Maglogiannis I Abstract Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is an established clinical technique that measures diffusion-weighted signals, applied primarily in brain studies. Diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) is a technique that uses the diffusion-weighted signals to obtain information about tissue connectivity, which recently started to become established in clinical use. The extraction of tracts (tractography) is an issue under active research. In this work we present an algorithm for recovering tracts, based on Dijkstra's minimum-cost path. A novel cost definition al...

In this study, we used three supervised machine learning (ML) techniques to differentiate MCI converters (MCIc) from MCI non-converters (MCInc) and predict their conversion rates from baseline MRI data (cortical thickness (CTH) and hippocampal volume (HCV)). A total of 803 participants from the ADNI cohort were included in this study (188 AD, 107 MCIc, 257 MCInc and 156 healthy controls (HC)). We studied the classification abilities of three different WEKA classifiers (support vector machine (SVM), decision trees (J48) and Naive Bayes (NB)). We built six different classification models, three models based on CTH and three ...

This study aimed to investigate how a unilateral high-grade tear caused overdistension of LAM and whether tear positions affect the degree of distension. Methods A total of 209 women were screened by translabial ultrasonography. Then, 18 nulliparous women with an intact LAM and 26 postpartum women with unilateral levator ani defects were recruited. The anteroposterior diameter (AP), coronal diameter (LR), and hiatal area (HA) of the minimum levator hiatus were recorded and compared for assessing the distensibility. All 44 subjects underwent magnetic resonance imaging for the diagnosis of levator ani defect and detection...

Abstract Cerebral venous thrombosis (CVT) is an uncommon cause of stroke that mainly affects young adults with known risk factors of prothrombotic conditions, pregnancy, infection, malignancy, and drugs. Dutasteride is a 5α-reductase inhibitor that is used for benign prostate hypertrophy and androgenetic alopecia. To date, CVT caused by dutasteride use has not been reported. A 25-year-old male presented with headache and diplopia. He had taken 0.5 mg of dutasteride every other day for 9 months to treat alopecia. A headache developed 7 months after he started taking medication, and horizontal diplopia occurre...

We report three cases of focal anterior interosseous fascicular involvement in the median nerve trunk presenting as AIN palsy. Our report emphasizes the unique ultrasonographic and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) features of swelling, hourglass-like constriction and torsion, and entwinement of the nerve fascicle of the dorsal region of the median nerve, which were confirmed surgically. On MRI, all patients showed denervation changes in the AIN territory, as well as in the median nerve territory, without compressing structures. PMID: 32469179 [PubMed - in process]

We are presenting a compelling case of a 61-year-old female with a history of appendiceal mucinous adenocarcinoma (AMA) with a new complaint of irritative lower urinary tract symptoms. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) showed a semi-circumferential, T2 hyperintense, rim enhancing, and lacking restricted diffusion lesion involving the urethra and infiltrating the right perineal and internal obturator muscles. The suspected differential diagnosis was urethral malignancy, based on her cancer history and MRI findings.

AbstractPurpose of ReviewCompressive neuropathy of the ulnar nerve across the elbow is a common diagnosis encountered frequently within a hand and upper extremity clinical practice. Appropriate and timely evaluation, diagnosis, objective testing, and evidence-based decisions regarding treatment options are paramount in the optimal care of the patient with this pathology. An understanding of current literature is critical in determining and understanding best practices.Recent FindingsA thorough review of the recent literature regarding physical examination, diagnostic testing, and nonoperative versus operative results was p...

The role of MRI-guided biopsy for diagnosis of prostate cancer; comparison between FUSION and "IN-BORE" approaches. Minerva Urol Nefrol. 2020 May 26;: Authors: D'agostino D, Casablanca C, Mineo Bianchi F, Corsi P, Romagnoli D, Giampaoli M, Fiori C, Schiavina R, Brunocilla E, Artibani W, Porreca A Abstract BACKGROUND: The aim of the present study is to evaluate the difference in terms of feasibility and detection rate of two magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) guided biopsy approaches (MRI fusion versus "in-bore" MRI) in a single tertiary centre. METHODS: We retrospectively identifi...
