Advanced MRI techniques of the fetal brain.

[Advanced MRI techniques of the fetal brain.] Radiologe. 2013 Feb 1; Authors: Schöpf V, Dittrich E, Berger-Kulemann V, Kasprian G, Kollndorfer K, Prayer D Abstract CLINICAL/METHODICAL ISSUE: Evaluation of the normal and pathological fetal brain. STANDARD RADIOLOGICAL METHODS: Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). METHODICAL INNOVATIONS: Advanced MRI of the fetal brain. PERFORMANCE: Diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) is used in clinical practice, all other methods are used at a research level. ACHIEVEMENTS: Serving as standard methods in the future. PRACTICAL RECOMMENDATIONS: Combined structural and functional data for all gestational ages will allow more specific insight into the developmental processes of the fetal brain. This gain of information will help provide a common understanding of complex spatial and temporal procedures of early morphological features and their impact on cognitive and sensory abilities.

Ann Yeh, Brenda Banwell, Amit Bar-Or, Douglas L. Arnold, Canadian Pediatric Demyelinating Disease NetworkAbstractIn conventional non-quantitative magnetic resonance imaging, image contrast is consistent within images, but absolute intensity can vary arbitrarily between scans. For quantitative analysis of intensity data, images are typically normalized to a consistent reference. The most convenient reference is a tissue that is always present in th...

Publication date: Available online 9 December 2019Source: NeuroImageAuthor(s): Erik D. Fagerholm, Rosalyn J. Moran, Inês R. Violante, Robert Leech, Karl J. FristonAbstractModels of coupled phase oscillators are used to describe a wide variety of phenomena in neuroimaging. These models typically rest on the premise that oscillator dynamics do not evolve beyond their respective limit cycles, and hence that interactions can be described purely in terms of phase differences. Whilst mathematically convenient, the restrictive nature of phase-only models can limit their explanatory power. We therefore propose a generalisati...

ConclusionsThe limited currently available evidence shows potential of certain MRI settings for the use in operative dentistry. Further research needs to assess the applicability and accuracy for dental hard tissues as well as cost-benefit aspects of the MRI technique.Clinical relevanceCertain MRI settings may have the potential as diagnostic tool in operative dentistry.

In conclusion, we described, for the first time, a case series of nivolumab-induced adrenal insufficiency in patients with mRCC. Our findings may be useful for the accurate diagnosis and the prompt treatment of this condition. In addition, there is a possibility that adrenal insufficiency may be associated with a favorable response to nivolumab in patients with mRCC.

Reiss, for the Diabetes Research in Children Network (DirecNet) BackgroundOptimal glycemic control is particularly difficult to achieve in children and adolescents with type 1 diabetes (T1D), yet the influence of dysglycemia on the developing brain remains poorly understood. Methods and findingsUsing a large multi-site study framework, we investigated activation patterns using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) in 93 children with T1...

AbstractPigmented villonodular synovitis (PVNS) is a proliferative disease that develops in the synovium of joints, especially the knee joints. A 52-year-old man visited our hospital with left knee pain, swelling and symptoms of collapse. Twenty-one years earlier, he had undergone anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction using an active bioprosthetic composite (ABC) as an artificial ligament. T1 and T2 weighted magnetic resonance imaging of the knee joint showed rupture of the ABC ligament and low signal intensity of hyperplastic synovium. Arthroscopic total synovectomy without ACL reconstruction was performed and t...

This study aimed to investigate the safety and efficacy of MRgFUS for PD by systematically reviewing related literature. PubMed and EMBASE were searched to identify related studies. Inclusion criteria were (1) reported the efficacy or sa fety of MRgFUS for PD and (2) published in English. Exclusion criteria were (1) nonhuman study, (2) review or meta-analysis or other literature types without original data, and (3) conference abstract without full text. Data on study characteristics, treatment parameters, efficacy, and adverse event s were collected. Descriptive synthesis of data was performed. Eleven studies containing 80...
