  • Influence of scan duration on dynamic contrast -enhanced magnetic resonance imaging pharmacokinetic parameters for brain lesions

    CONCLUSION: K(ep) and V(e) were time-dependent in brain tumors, so a longer scan time is needed to obtain reliable parameter values. K^(trans) was found to be time-independent, as it remains the same in all 6 acquisition times and is the only reliable parameter with short acquisition times.

  • MRI and Clinical Biomarkers Overlap between Glaucoma and Alzheimer's Disease

    Glaucoma is the leading cause of blindness worldwide. It is classically associated with structural and functional changes in the optic nerve head and retinal nerve fiber layer, but the damage is not limited to the eye. The involvement of the central visual pathways and disruption of brain network organization have been reported using advanced neuroimaging techniques. The brain structural changes at the level of the areas implied in processing visual information could justify the discrepancy...

  • Multishell diffusion MRI reveals whole-brain white matter changes in HIV

    Diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) and diffusion kurtosis imaging (DKI) have been previously used to explore white matter related to human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection. While DTI and DKI suffer from low specificity, the Combined Hindered and Restricted Model of Diffusion (CHARMED) provides additional microstructural specificity. We used these three models to evaluate microstructural differences between 35 HIV-positive patients without neurological impairment and 20 healthy controls who...

  • Triple gallbladder: radiological review

    Triple gallbladder represents a rare congenital anatomical abnormality that can be a diagnostic challenge in reason to its rarity and consequential difficulties with diagnosis and identification. A systematic review of all published literature between 1958 and 2022 was performed. We identified 20 previous studies that provided 20 cases of triple gallbladder; our case was also included in the analysis, making a total of 21 patients. All patients underwent on diagnostic imaging examinations. After...

  • Sex hormones differentially contribute to Parkinson disease in males: A multimodal biomarker study

    CONCLUSIONS: The study suggested that sex hormones could differentially contribute to clinical-pathological features of PD in male patients. Whereas estradiol might have a protective role in motor impairment, testosterone might be involved in male vulnerability to PD neuropathology. Gonadotropins instead might mediate age-dependent phenomena of amyloidopathy and cognitive decline.
