Investigation of changes in bone density and chemical composition associated with bone marrow oedema-type appearances in magnetic resonance images of the equine forelimb

The aetiology of bone marrow oedema-like abnormalities (BMOA) seen on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is as yet not fully understood. The current study aimed to investigate the potential of projection radiogr...

AbstractBackgroundThe purpose of this study is to investigate the performance of dual-layer detector spectral CT for iron deposition compared to magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) T2* imaging.MethodsThirty-one patients with a clinical history of myelodysplastic syndromes and aplastic anemia underwent liver and cardiac T2*-weighted unenhanced MRI on a three-tesla MRI scanner, and underwent unenhanced CT scan laterally on a 128-row spectral detector CT. R2* values of the liver, septal muscle, and paraspinal muscle were calculated. Attenuation differences ( ΔH) in the liver and myocardium were calculated between the lower...

AbstractThe clinical pictures of essential tremor (ET) with resting tremor (rET) and tremor-dominant Parkinson ’s disease (tPD) are often quite mimic at the early stage, current approaches to the diagnosis and treatment therefore remain challenging. The regional homogeneity (ReHo) method under resting-state functional magnetic resonance imaging (rs-fMRI) would help exhibit the patterns in neural activity, which further contribute to differentiate these disorders and explore the relationship between symptoms and regional functional abnormalities. Sixty-eight Chinese participants were recruited, including 19 rET patien...

ConclusionsTo date, this is the first reported case where a patient underwent oblique lateral interbody fusion surgery in a left lateral decubitus position due to a left-sided inferior vena cava. This case demonstrates that carefully reading radiological results is important for operation planning and avoiding anatomical complications.

CONCLUSIONS: Powerlifters with and without LBP show similar functional impairments and patho-anatomical findings. However, powerlifters' LBP seems associated with pain during movement and loading of the lumbar spine. The association and causation between specific functional impairments, patho-anatomical findings and LBP in powerlifters has to be further investigated in studies including more participants.

Schmidt, Patrick Halli, Peter Kirsch, Martin Fungisai GerchenAbstractReal-time functional magnetic resonance imaging neurofeedback (rtfMRI NFB) is a promising method for targeted regulation of pathological brain processes in mental disorders. But most NFB approaches so far have used relatively restricted regional activation as a target, which might not address the complexity of the underlying network changes. Aiming towards advancing novel treatment tools for disorders like schizophrenia, we develop...
