At Beckman Laser Institute, University of California, Irvine, the investigators have developed diagnostic device call 'optical coherence tomography (OCT).' The imaging technique used in cl...
Optic nerve head Drusen are a mostly bilateral change of the optic nerve, eventually causing a slow, but progression loss of the visual fields. Characteristic are the crystalline deposits ...
Small fiber neuropathy (SFN) is a common disorder, which has a profound negative impact on quality of life because of severe neuropathic pain. To reliably establish a diagnosis of SFN is c...
Clinical trial investigating the role of hyperspectral imaging in the management of patients undergoing standard clinical treatment for naive neovascular choroidal membranes in age-related...
This two tiered study is a multi-center, open label, surveillance study of the use of continuous nerve blocks with the ON-Q® C-bloc and either nerve stimulator or ultrasound guided contin...
To evaluate whether corneal confocal microscopy (CCM) detects axonal degeneration and whether this is associated with retinal nerve fiber degeneration and clinical disability in patients with multiple...
Axon degeneration leads to cytoskeletal disassembly, metabolism imbalance, and mitochondrial dysfunction during neurodegeneration or nerve injury.
Macular degeneration (MD) affects the central retina and leads to gradual loss of foveal vision. Although, photoreceptors are primarily affected in MD, the retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) and central...
Damage to and loss of the organ of Corti leads to secondary degeneration of the spiral ganglion cell (SGC) somata of the auditory nerve. Extensively examined in animal models, this degeneration proces...
Introduction：The immune system plays a pivotal role in nerve injury. The aim of this study was to investigate the role of multi-parametric magnetic resonance (MR) imaging in the evaluation of the sy...
Loss of functional activity and trophic degeneration of nerve axons and their terminal arborizations following the destruction of their cells of origin or interruption of their continuity with these cells. The pathology is characteristic of neurodegenerative diseases. Often the process of nerve degeneration is studied in research on neuroanatomical localization and correlation of the neurophysiology of neural pathways.
The use of molecularly targeted imaging probes to localize and/or monitor biochemical and cellular processes via various imaging modalities that include RADIONUCLIDE IMAGING; ULTRASONOGRAPHY; MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING; fluorescence imaging; and MICROSCOPY.
Degeneration of distal aspects of a nerve axon following injury to the cell body or proximal portion of the axon. The process is characterized by fragmentation of the axon and its MYELIN SHEATH.
The use of combination of imaging techniques or platforms (e.g., MRI SCAN and PET SCAN) encompassing aspects of anatomical, functional, or molecular imaging methods.
A technetium imaging agent used in renal scintigraphy, computed tomography, lung ventilation imaging, gastrointestinal scintigraphy, and many other procedures which employ radionuclide imaging agents.
Anxiety is caused by stress. It is a natural reaction, and is beneficial in helping us deal with tense situations and pressure. It is deterimental when is becomes an excessive, irrational dread of everyday situations. The most common types of anxiety di...
