Scleral thickness, especially near the region of the optic nerve head (ONH), is a potential factor of interest in the development of glaucomatous optic neuropathy. Our goal was to characterize the scleral thickness distribution and other geometric features of human eyes. Eleven enucleated human globes (7 normal and 4 ostensibly glaucomatous) were imaged(More)
The biomechanical environment within the optic nerve head, important in glaucoma, depends strongly on scleral biomechanical properties. Here we use a range of measured nonlinear scleral stress-strain relationships in a finite element (FE) model of the eye to compute the biomechanical environment in the optic nerve head at three levels of intraocular(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE There is increasing evidence implicating microvascular impairment in MS pathogenesis. Perfusion imaging offers a unique opportunity to investigate the functional impact of GM pathology. We sought to quantify differences in MR imaging-based bookend-derived cerebral perfusion between cognitively impaired and nonimpaired patients with(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Cognitive impairment is a common, disabling symptom of MS. We investigated the impact of cerebral perfusion and brain and lesion volumetry on cognitive performance in 45 patients with SPMS by using MR imaging. MATERIALS AND METHODS Cognition was assessed by using a standard battery, the Minimal Assessment of Cognitive Function in(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Multiple patient-specific clinical and radiologic parameters impact traditional perfusion thresholds used to classify/determine tissue outcome. We sought to determine whether modified baseline perfusion thresholds calculated by integrating baseline perfusion and clinical factors better predict tissue fate and clinical outcome. (More)
Dynamic contrast-enhanced perfusion and permeability imaging, using computed tomography and magnetic resonance systems, are important techniques for assessing the vascular supply and hemodynamics of healthy brain parenchyma and tumors. These techniques can measure blood flow, blood volume, and blood-brain barrier permeability surface area product and, thus,(More)
PURPOSE We aim to characterize infarct volume evolution within the first month post-ischemic stroke and to determine the effect of recanalization status on early infarct volume estimation. METHODS Ischemic stroke patients recruited for the MONITOR and VISION studies were retrospectively screened and patients who had infarcts on diffusion-weighted imaging(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Secondary-progressive MS is characterized by reduced acute inflammation and contrast enhancement but with increased axonal degeneration and cognitive/clinical disability that worsens with advanced disease. Relative recirculation, extracted from DSC is a surrogate measure of BBB integrity. We hypothesized that normal-appearing white(More)
