A Pilot Study of Functional Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) for Ocular Imaging

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...

Spectral Domain OCT Imaging in Patients With Optic Nerve Head Drusen (Tuebingen SD-OCT IN OPTIC NERVE HEAD DRUSEN STUDY)

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 ...

Autofluorescent Flavoprotein Imaging of Intraepidermal Nerve Fibers: a Pilot Study

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...

Evaluation of Complete Median Nerve Transection With Clinical, Electroneuromyographic and Diffusion Tensor Imaging

The aim of this study is to determine whether clinical, sensory and motor development correlated with the values obtained from Electroneuromyography and DTI in postoperative follow up pati...

Multicenter Continuous Peripheral Nerve Block Surveillance Study

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...

Degeneration of auditory nerve fibers in guinea pigs with severe sensorineural hearing loss.

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...

Diagnostic imaging of changes of the canine intervertebral disc.

Intervertebral disc degeneration can cause intervertebral disc herniation. Diagnostic imaging, including radiography, computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging, is the most important tool in ...

Cochlear Implantation in Patient with Cochear Nerve Deficiency: A Case Report.

Diagnostic imaging methods are very important for patients with bilateral sensourinoural hearing loss. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is able to demonstrate the vestibulocochlear nerve and facial ne...

A comparative study of peripheral nerve MRI and ultrasound in MMN and ALS: Nerve imaging in neuropathies.

Differentiating multifocal motor neuropathy (MMN) from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is important, as MMN is a difficult, but treatable disorder.

18F-FDG PET/CT Demonstrating Malignant Degeneration of a Uterine Fibroid.

Whereas benign leiomyoma of the uterus (fibroid) is very common, malignant degeneration of such fibroids to leiomyosarcoma is rare. Anatomical imaging with CT or MRI cannot differentiate between large...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

A technetium imaging agent used in renal scintigraphy, computed tomography, lung ventilation imaging, gastrointestinal scintigraphy, and many other procedures which employ radionuclide imaging agents.

Optical imaging techniques used for recording patterns of electrical activity in tissues by monitoring transmembrane potentials via FLUORESCENCE imaging with voltage-sensitive fluorescent dyes.
