Summary of "Normal values and test-retest variability of stimulated-echo diffusion tensor imaging and fat fraction measurements in the muscle."

To assess the test-retest variability of both diffusion parameters and fat fraction (FF) estimates in normal muscle, and to assess differences in normal values between muscles in the thigh.

Test-Retest Variability in the Characteristics of Envelope Following Responses Evoked by Speech Stimuli.

The objective of the present study was to evaluate the between-session test-retest variability in the characteristics of envelope following responses (EFRs) evoked by modified natural speech stimuli i...

Choroid plexus cysts analyzed using diffusion-weighted imaging with short diffusion-time.

Oscillating gradient spin-echo (OGSE) sequences can shorten diffusion times by replacing the long-lasting diffusion-sensitizing gradients used in pulsed gradient spin-echo (PGSE) methods with rapidly ...

Test-retest reproducibility of white matter parcellation using diffusion MRI tractography fiber clustering.

There are two popular approaches for automated white matter parcellation using diffusion MRI tractography, including fiber clustering strategies that group white matter fibers according to their geome...

Readout-segmented echo-planar diffusion-weighted MR at 3.0 T for the evaluation the effect of low-intensity transcranial ultrasound on stroke in a rat model.

To investigate the feasibility of the relative apparent diffusion coefficient (rADC) values based on readout-segmented echo-planar diffusion sequence in evaluation the effects of low-intensity transcr...

Test-retest reliability of the Re-Integration to Normal Living Index (RNL-I) to assess perceived participation in adults with late effects of polio.

Many individuals with late effects of polio have difficulties participating in daily activities. The Re-integration to Normal Living Index (RNL-I) is a self-report questionnaire that evaluates perceiv...

Determine if Apparent Diffusion Coefficient (ADC) Values Can Differentiate Tumors From Normal Tissue

The purpose of this study is to determine normal measurements (ADC values) from the head and neck of healthy volunteers using 3T MRI.

Normal Values of Brain Natriuretic Peptide in Healthy Newborn

Brain natriuretic peptide (BNP) is an important tool for diagnosis, risk stratification and prognosis in pediatric patients with heart failure1. In newborn, after delivery, the BNP plays a...

Variations of High Sensitivity Troponin T in Neonates

Troponin T-us is a cardiac marker for myocardial infarction. Its use in neonates is increasing, yet normal values are still to be determined for the latest generation of tests, such as Hig...

High B Value Diffusion and Stroke

This study will include 100 stroke patients with significant penumbra at the acute stage and successfully recanalized thanks to thrombectomy. Patients will be explored with the multi-b dif...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Test results which deviate substantially from normal ranges of REFERENCE VALUES or other qualitative results. They trigger CLINICAL LABORATORY SERVICES to place a special alert to ensure PATIENT SAFETY.

A diagnostic technique that incorporates the measurement of molecular diffusion (such as water or metabolites) for tissue assessment by MRI. The degree of molecular movement can be measured by changes of apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) with time, as reflected by tissue microstructure. Diffusion MRI has been used to study BRAIN ISCHEMIA and tumor response to treatment.

The use of diffusion ANISOTROPY data from diffusion magnetic resonance imaging results to construct images based on the direction of the faster diffusing molecules.

A distribution in which a variable is distributed like the sum of the squares of any given independent random variable, each of which has a normal distribution with mean of zero and variance of one. The chi-square test is a statistical test based on comparison of a test statistic to a chi-square distribution. The oldest of these tests are used to detect whether two or more population distributions differ from one another.

The tendency of a gas or solute to pass from a point of higher pressure or concentration to a point of lower pressure or concentration and to distribute itself throughout the available space. Diffusion, especially FACILITATED DIFFUSION, is a major mechanism of BIOLOGICAL TRANSPORT.
