Magnetic Resonance Flow Measurements of Mesenteric Arteries and Veins and Portal Vein

To determine the difference in baseline MR flow measurements and post-prandial MR flow measurements between patients diagnosed with CGI and patients not diagnosed with CGI.


The diagnosis of chronic gastro-intestinal ischemia (CGI) remains a clinical challenge because this diagnosis is difficult to distinguish by the frequent incidence of chronic abdominal pain and asymptomatic stenosis of the mesenteric arteries1. The standard diagnostic work up includes medical history, anamnesis and physical examination, radiological imaging and a functional test as visible light spectroscopy (VLS)2-4 or tonometry5-7. A multidisciplinary team consisting of a gastroenterologist, a vascular surgeon and an interventional radiologist, all specialized in CGI, discusses all patients which results in an expert based consensus diagnosis. Currently, there is no specific test to diagnose CGI. In literature, Magnetic Resonance (MR) techniques are described by which the flow in the mesenteric vessels is measured pre- and post-prandial in healthy volunteers and CGI patients8-12. The flow in the mesenteric vessels increases post-prandial (hyperemia). However, this increase in post-prandial flow compared to pre-prandial appeared less in CGI patients compared to the healthy volunteers. In some CGI patients, even a decrease of the post-prandial compared to pre-prandial flow was seen. We might be able to distinguish patients with CGI from patients without CGI with MR flow measurements with food stimulation.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A disorder characterized by a reduction of oxygen in the blood combined with reduced blood flow (ISCHEMIA) to the brain from a localized obstruction of a cerebral artery or from systemic hypoperfusion. Prolonged hypoxia-ischemia is associated with ISCHEMIC ATTACK, TRANSIENT; BRAIN INFARCTION; BRAIN EDEMA; COMA; and other conditions.

The chilling of a tissue or organ during decreased BLOOD perfusion or in the absence of blood supply. Cold ischemia time during ORGAN TRANSPLANTATION begins when the organ is cooled with a cold perfusion solution after ORGAN PROCUREMENT surgery, and ends after the tissue reaches physiological temperature during implantation procedures. WARM ISCHEMIA TIME starts then and ends with completion of SURGICAL ANASTOMOSIS.

A consistent pattern of food and drink consumption that contributes to the development and advancement of DENTAL CARIES.

Localized reduction of blood flow to brain tissue due to arterial obstruction or systemic hypoperfusion. This frequently occurs in conjunction with brain hypoxia (HYPOXIA, BRAIN). Prolonged ischemia is associated with BRAIN INFARCTION.

An imperfect fungus present on most agricultural seeds and often responsible for the spoilage of seeds in bulk storage. It is also used in the production of fermented food or drink, especially in Japan.
