Diffusional kurtosis imaging (DKI) and neurite orientation dispersion and density imaging (NODDI) are new diffusional magnetic resonance imaging (dMRI) techniques to clarify the characterization of neural tissues in the human brain. In this study, we evaluated the structural changes of the cerebrum in patients with bipolar disorder (BD) by these dMRI techniques.

Despite recent advances in diffusion MRI (dMRI), there is still limited information on neurite orientation dispersion and density imaging (NODDI) in temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE). This study aimed to d...
Our study aimed to develop accelerated microscopic diffusional kurtosis imaging (μDKI) and preliminarily evaluated it in a rodent model of chronic epilepsy.
Background and purpose - Neurite orientation dispersion and density imaging (NODDI) is a new technique that applies a three-diffusion-compartment biophysical model. We assessed the usefulness of NODDI...
Histological studies have reported microstructural hemispheric asymmetries in several cortical areas of the human brain, but reliable in vivo assessment methods have been lacking so far. Here, we used...
Neurite orientation dispersion and density imaging (NODDI), a MRI multi-shell diffusion technique, has offered new insights for the study of microstructural changes in neurodegenerative diseases. Main...
Clinically isolated syndrome (CIS) can evolve into multiple sclerosis. In CIS patients, episodic memory is frequently impaired. Memory disorders could be preceded by microstructural abnorm...
Cerebral vascular disorder is one of the most fatal diseases despite current advances in medical science. The large number of negative clinical trials on neuroprotection in acute stroke is...
Fractionated radiotherapy induces an observable change in the proliferative activity as assessed by pre-treatment and early-treatment 18F-FLT PET imaging. This study is designed to invest...
The purpose of this study is to compare whole body magnetic resonance (MR) imaging, whole body positron emission tomography (PET)/MR imaging, and (if available) PET/Computed Tomography (CT...
Hypothesis: To estimate the proportion of locally advanced, recurrent or metastatic nasopharyngeal cancer patients which show high somatostatin receptor density (SUVmax >10) on Ga-68 DOTAT...
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.
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.
Optical imaging techniques used for recording patterns of electrical activity in tissues by monitoring transmembrane potentials via FLUORESCENCE imaging with voltage-sensitive fluorescent dyes.
Visualization of the heart structure and cardiac blood flow for diagnostic evaluation or to guide cardiac procedures via techniques including ENDOSCOPY (cardiac endoscopy, sometimes refered to as cardioscopy), RADIONUCLIDE IMAGING; MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING; TOMOGRAPHY; or ULTRASONOGRAPHY.
Psychiatry is the study of mental disorders and their diagnosis, management and prevention. Conditions include schizophrenia, severe depression and panic disorders among others. There are pharmaceutical treatments as well as other therapies to help...
