Imaging in Large Vessel Vasculitides.

Summary of "Imaging in Large Vessel Vasculitides."

 Large vessel vasculitides comprise primary vasculitides of large and medium-sized arteries with various clinical, laboratory and radiological presentations. Imaging has become increasingly important in the diagnosis and monitoring of large vessel vasculitides. It complements clinical and laboratory examination and displays vasculitic changes of large extra- and intracranial arteries with relatively good diagnostic reliability and a low level of invasiveness.

Diffuse Alveolar Hemorrhage and Pulmonary Vasculitides: Histopathologic Findings.

Vasculitides are a heterogeneous group of disorders in which inflammation of blood vessel walls is present at least some time during the course of the disease. Vasculitides can affect any caliber or t...

Vessel wall and lumen characteristics with age in healthy participants using 3T intracranial vessel wall magnetic resonance imaging.

Intracranial vessel wall imaging (VWI) at a clinical field strength of 3T has become more widely available. However, how vessel measurements change with age and sex, over an age range spanning a typic...

Flat panel imaging of occlusion site and collateral scores for emergent large vessel occlusion.

Flat panel imaging for emergent large vessel occlusion can be acquired prior to mechanical thrombectomy (MT). In this study, we examined patients undergoing MT with computed tomography angiography (CT...

Effect of Treatment on Imaging, Clinical, and Serologic Assessments of Disease Activity in Large-Vessel Vasculitis.

Disease activity in large-vessel vasculitis (LVV) is traditionally assessed by clinical and serological parameters rather than vascular imaging. This study determined the effect of treatment on 18F-fl...

Dismantling the ability of CT and MRI to identify the target mismatch profile in patients with anterior circulation large vessel occlusion beyond six hours from symptom onset.

Patients with large vessel occlusion and target mismatch on imaging may be thrombectomy candidates in the extended time window. However, the ability of imaging modalities including non-contrast CT Alb...

Monitoring Large Vessel Vasculitis With PET/MR Imaging

Large vessel vasculitis (LVV) causes blood vessel inflammation leading to pain, fatigue and complications such as aneurysm formation and stroke. Treatments used can have significant side-e...

Multicenter, Prospective, Randomized, Controlled, Double-blind Trial on the Impact of Rosuvastatin on Subclinical Markers of Atherosclerosis in Patients With Primary Necrotizing Vasculitides

Vessel Wall Imaging for Diagnosis and Monitoring of Central Nervous System (CNS) Vasculitis

This is a prospective pilot study to determine the utility of MRI and high resolution intracranial vessel wall imaging for the diagnosis and disease activity assessment of intracranial vas...

Intravenous Immunoglobulin After Relapse in Vasculitis

The aim of this study is to study the efficacy of intravenous immunoglobulins for inducing remission in patients relapsing of systemic vasculitides.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

Blocking of a blood vessel by fat deposits in the circulation. It is often seen after fractures of large bones or after administration of CORTICOSTEROIDS.
