Application of ultrahigh-field MRI in neuro-oncology.

[Application of ultrahigh-field MRI in neuro-oncology]. Radiologe. 2013 May;53(5):411-4 Authors: Radbruch A, Schlemmer HP Abstract The introduction of high-field magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) into neuro-oncological imaging allows improved visualization of tumor structures even in the field of T1 and T2-weighted imaging. Susceptibility-weighted imaging (SWI) and time of flight (TOF) angiography in particular greatly benefit from the high field strength. The visualization of tumor vasculature in MRI, which was made possible by high-field technology can potentially be applied to monitoring antiangiogenic therapy. Cerebral metastases can potentially be discovered earlier using high-field technology. Furthermore, high-field technology permits the use of new technologies, such as sodium imaging, which is expected to provide new information in the field of tumor pathophysiology.

Positron emission tomography (PET) is an advanced radionuclide technique that has been available for decades. Originally used as a research tool that contributed to advances in the understanding of cardiovascular pathophysiology, it is now becoming established in clinical practice and is increasingly used in the diagnosis...

A previously healthy 13-year-old girl presented with a 9-day history of acute onset severe neck pain associated with limited range of movement. Medical evaluation at day 2 was suggestive of muscle contracture, and she was discharged home with diazepam, antiinflammatory agents, and rest; however, she returned because of progressive clinical worsening with left arm distal paresthesia and paralysis since day 3. There was no history of trauma or other systemic complaints, and her familial medical history was unremarkable. Physical examination revealed left cervical and paravertebral tenderness on palpation with severe limitat...

Abstract Numerous recent technological advances offer the potential to substantially enhance the MRI evaluation of moyamoya disease (MMD). These include high-resolution volumetric imaging, high-resolution vessel wall characterization, improved cerebral angiographic and perfusion techniques, high-field imaging, fast scanning methods, and artificial intelligence. This review discusses the current state-of-the-art MRI applications in these realms, emphasizing key imaging findings, clinical utility, and areas that will benefit from further investigation. Although these techniques may apply to imaging of a wide array o...
