Abstract Brain imaging with MRI identifies structural cerebral pathology that may give rise to seizures. The greatest yield is from MRI at 3T using epilepsy protocols, and reported by expert neuroradiologists who possess the full clinical data. X-ray CT scanning has a role in assessing patients with seizures in the context of an acute neurological illness. Identifying a relevant structural lesion with MRI is fundamental in the consideration of epilepsy surgery; it is crucial to establish if a lesion is relevant to the epilepsy or not. If no lesion is identified, developmental MRI and image processing may identify ...

AbstractLiposome is one of the oldest yet most successful nanomedicine platforms. Doxil ®, PEGylated liposome loaded with doxorubicin (DOX), was approved by the FDA in 1995 for the treatment of AIDS-related Kaposi’s sarcoma, and it was the first approval for nanomedicine. Since then, liposome-based therapeutics were approved for the treatment of various diseases and many clinical tr ials are underway. The success of the liposome-based therapeutics was due to following factors: (1) ease of synthesis, (2) biocompatibility, (3) the ability to load both hydrophilic and hydrophobic agents, and (4) long circulation pro...

AbstractObjectiveWith the advancement of reperfusion therapy in stroke patients, assessment of perfusion status after therapy is gaining importance. Hyperperfusion tends to be underestimated by the conventional early imaging of123I-IMP brain perfusion SPECT. We evaluated the utility of super-early imaging as an adjunct to early imaging for the assessment of postischemic hyperperfusion in stroke patients.MethodsSixty-seven patients who underwent123I-IMP brain perfusion SPECT within 14 days after the onset of cerebral infarction were retrospectively analyzed. Super-early (4 –10 min) and early (15–45 min...

Publication date: 2018 Source:Handbook of Clinical Neurology, Volume 152 Author(s): Dieta Brandsma, Jacoline E.C. Bromberg Primary CNS lymphoma (PCNSL) has been designated an acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS)-defining disease since 1983 and accounts for up to 15% of non-Hodgkin lymphomas in human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) patients. The majority of HIV patients are Epstein–Barr virus (EBV)-related. The most likely etiology is ineffective immunoregulation of EBV, inducing oncogenic protein expression, and subsequent loss of apoptosis and increased proliferation of lymphocytes. PCNSL generally presents with...

AbstractContextAccurate preoperative localization of abnormal parathyroid tissue aids importantly in minimally invasive parathyroidectomy in patients with primary hyperparathyroidism. Vitamin D deficiency may possibly influence the success and characteristics of pre-operative localization because it is associated with more active disease and possibly larger adenomas. This could increase the sensitivity of the sestamibi to identify abnormal parathyroid tissue, but earlier reports are conflicting. Vitamin D deficiency could also influence the nature of preoperative localization because it could lead to multi-gland stimulatio...
