Altered static and dynamic indices of intrinsic brain activity in patients with subcortical ischemic vascular disease: a resting-state functional magnetic resonance imaging analysis
ConclusionANG may be a vulnerable brain region in SIVD patients. Temporal dynamic analysis could serve as a sensitive and promising method to investigate IBA alterations in SIVD patients. (Source: Neuroradiology)

Association between computed tomography perfusion and the effect of intravenous alteplase prior to endovascular treatment in acute ischemic stroke
ConclusionIn directly admitted patients with limited CTP-estimated ischemic core volumes who presented within 4.5 h after symptom onset, CTP parameters did not statistically significantly alter the treatment effect of IVT prior to EVT. Further studies are needed to confirm these results in patients with larger core volumes and more unfavorable baseline perfusion profiles on CTP imaging. (Source: Neuroradiology)

Unusual neuroimaging findings in spontaneous intracranial hypotension
ConclusionRadiologists should be familiar with atypical neuroimaging manifestations of SIH in order to avoid misdiagnosis and guide the clinical trajectory of the patient towards accurate diagnosis and eventual cure. (Source: Neuroradiology)

Percutaneous transluminal angioplasty and/or stenting for the treatment of basilar artery stenosis: a systematic review and meta-analysis
ConclusionElective PTAS appears to be safe and effective in selected patients with medically refractory, severe, symptomatic, and non-acute BAS. Different stent types and angioplasty-assisted procedures should be considered based on specific clinico-radiological characteristics of the lesions. Future randomized controlled trials are required to corroborate these findings. (Source: Neuroradiology)

Brain structural changes in preschool children with MRI-negative epilepsy
ConclusionChanges in preschool children with epilepsy occur in the cortical rather than subcortical structures of the brain. These findings further our understanding of the effects of epilepsy in preschool children and will inform management of epilepsy in this patient population. (Source: Neuroradiology)

Evaluation of cholesterol crystals in carotid plaque by dual energy computed tomography
This study examines the validity of assessing CCs using dual-energy computed tomography (DECT) that uses X-rays with different tube voltages for imaging, allowing material discrimination. We retrospectively evaluated patients who had undergone preoperative cervical computed tomography angiography and carotid endarterectomy between December 2019 and July 2020. We developed CC-based material decomposition images (MDIs) by scanning CCs crystallized in the laboratory using DECT. We compared the percentage of CCs in stained slides defined by cholesterol clefts with the percentage of CCs displayed by CC-based MDIs. Thirty-seven ...

Risk factors for the development of secondary intracranial hypertension in acute cerebral venous thrombosis
ConclusionLarger thrombus volume, dominant transverse sinus occlusion, and extensive superior sagittal combined with transverse sinus thrombosis were associated with IH. Thrombus volumetry might identify patients at risk for IH and direct further clinical evaluation. (Source: Neuroradiology)
