Prospective Observation for Serial Changes in Acute Intracranial Artery Dissection Using HR-MRI

2017-07-12 09:53:21 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Intracranial artery disease has been more detected with development of HR-MR. HR-MR can depict vascular wall directly and give us more information beyond the pre-existing imaging modalities such as digital subtraction angiography, magnetic resonance angiography, computed tomography angiography. Hence, HR-MR is considered to become promising imaging modality for intracranial artery disease and many studies have been published recently. However, there was not enough to differentiate various intracranial artery disease such as atherosclerosis, dissection, moyamoya disease, vasculitis, reversible vasoconstriction syndrome. In real clinical arena, intracranial artery disease is too difficult to diagnose and distinguish among the disease. Of the disease, usefulness of HR-MR has been consistently published in the detection and diagnosis of intracranial artery dissection recently. HR-MR seems to be the most important and reliable imaging method in intracranial artery dissection as of now. Therefore, intracranial artery dissection is necessary to study using HR-MR. Intracranial artery dissection is dynamic vascular pathology. The geometric change is the most common among intracranial artery disease. However, there was no report about the geometric change in HR-MR. We acquired retrospective data about the natural course of intracranial artery dissection in HR-MR and are preparing for publishing an article. However, the data is not prospective and not intraindividual comparison. Therefore, reliability is not enough to convince the natural course. If we got prospective and intraindividual data, definite natural course of intracranial artery dissection could be acquired and would be helpful to diagnose the dissection and differentiate from other vascular pathologies. I'm sure that the longitudinal information from this study could guide us as the important map on the confusing HR-MR findings. In addition, our retrospective study can be a stepping-stone to perform a prospective study, which can increase the success rate of the prospective study. The protocols for imaging follow-up are as followed: initial (optional), 1 month, 3 month, 6 month (optional), 12 month

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.

A technique applicable to the wide variety of substances which exhibit paramagnetism because of the magnetic moments of unpaired electrons. The spectra are useful for detection and identification, for determination of electron structure, for study of interactions between molecules, and for measurement of nuclear spins and moments. (From McGraw-Hill Encyclopedia of Science and Technology, 7th edition) Electron nuclear double resonance (ENDOR) spectroscopy is a variant of the technique which can give enhanced resolution. Electron spin resonance analysis can now be used in vivo, including imaging applications such as MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING.

Spectroscopic method of measuring the magnetic moment of elementary particles such as atomic nuclei, protons or electrons. It is employed in clinical applications such as NMR Tomography (MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING).

A type of MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING that uses only one nuclear spin excitation per image and therefore can obtain images in a fraction of a second rather than the minutes required in traditional MRI techniques. It is used in a variety of medical and scientific applications.

The creation of a visual display of the inside of the entire body of a human or animal for the purposes of diagnostic evaluation. This is most commonly achieved by using MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING; or POSITRON EMISSION TOMOGRAPHY.
