Are left angular gyrus and amygdala volumes important for financial capacity in mild cognitive impairment?

CONCLUSION: Financial capacity in Greek aMCI patients strongly correlates with right amygdala and left angular gyrus volumes, a finding that supports that emotion as well arithmetic skills are involved in financial capacity, while the importance of MMSE as the only neuropsychological test with the strongest positive correlation is discussed.

DiscussionWe showed that SD-EEG study confirmed a high specificity to assess a specific diagnosis. Therefore, the decrease of activity observed in DMN could be explain by a different amount of sleep/awake time during fMRI recording in the two groups or the interictal activity during fMRI acquisition. Our study highlighted alterated functional activity in SD cortical areas of epileptic patients if compared to HC.

Davey, Lianne SchmaalAbstractMajor depressive disorder (MDD) often emerges during adolescence with detrimental effects on development as well as lifetime consequences. Identifying neurobiological markers that are associated with the onset or course of this disorder in childhood and adolescence is important for early recognition and intervention and, potentially, for the prevention of illness onset. In this systematic review, 68 longitudina...

Meniscus allograft transplantation is a valuable surgical option for post-meniscectomy syndrome. For best results, the selected allograft should be as similar as possible to the original meniscus. Three-dimensional meniscus sizing could be a new approach to improve the accuracy of meniscus matching. The contralateral anatomy might therefore be a suitable reconstruction template. The purpose of this study was to compare the three-dimensional shape of the right and left menisci by bi-planar segmentation of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans.

In this report, considering also the literature information, a case of G.sanguinis which is thought to cause meningitis was presented. Our case is a 39-year-old female patient with a lumboperitoneal shunt. The patient was admitted to the neurosurgery clinic with a headache and vision loss and was hospitalized in the service with a pre-diagnosis of pseudotumor cerebri. Neurological examination revealed no pathological findings. Eye examination revealed mild papillary edema, local retinal hemorrhage, and bilateral expansion in retinal vascularization. There was no pathologic findings in the brain magnetic resonance imaging. ...

ReinholdAbstractUterine leiomyomas, the most frequent benign myomatous tumors of the uterus, often cannot be distinguished from malignant uterine leiomyosarcomas using clinical criteria. Furthermore, imaging differentiation between both entities is frequently challenging due to their potential overlapping features. Because a suspected leiomyoma is often managed conservatively or with minimally invasive treatments, the misdiagno...

AbstractHyperbilirubinemia is a common occurrence in neonates; it may be physiological or pathological. Conjugated hyperbilirubinemia may result from medical or surgical causes, and can result in irreversible liver damage if untreated. The aim of imaging is the timely diagnosis of surgical conditions like biliary atresia and choledochal cysts. Abdominal ultrasound is the first line imaging modality, and Magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography (MRCP) also has a role, especially in pre-operative assessment of choledochal cysts (CDCs). For biliary atresia, the triangular cord sign and gallbladder abnormalities are the two...

This study’s goal is to elucidate how these TMS-induced neuromodulatory effects might relate to the neural correlates and be modulated by individual anatomical profiles in relation to meta-memory. In a within-subjects design, we assessed th e impact of 20-min rTMS over the precuneus, compared to the vertex, across three magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) neuro-profiles on 18 healthy subjects during a memory versus a perceptual task. Task-based functional MRI revealed that BOLD signal magnitude in the precuneus is associated with variatio n in individual meta-memory efficiency. Moreover, individuals with higher resting-...
