Grey matter loss in relapsing–remitting multiple sclerosis: A voxel-based morphometry study
We addressed the question of if and where GM loss is localized by means of optimized voxel-based morphometry, applied to MRI studies of 51 patients with clinically defined relapsing-remitting MS and 34 age-matched normal subjects, segmented into normal and abnormal brain tissues using a multiparametric approach.

Diffusion‐weighted imaging in multiple system atrophy: A comparison between clinical subtypes
Multiple system atrophy can be classified into two main types, a Parkinsonian (MSA‐P) and a cerebellar (MSA‐C) variant based on clinical presentation. We obtained diffusion‐weighted magneticExpand

Magnetic resonance imaging is an accurate and reliable method to evaluate non‐cystic fibrosis paediatric lung disease
Background and objective:  Chest MRI is increasingly used to assess pulmonary diseases, but its utility compared with high‐resolution computed tomography (HRCT) has never been evaluated in childrenExpand

Progression of striatal and extrastriatal degeneration in multiple system atrophy: A longitudinal diffusion‐weighted MR study
Diffusion‐weighted imaging has been largely used to detect and quantify early degenerative changes in patients with multiple system atrophy, but progression of neurodegeneration has been poorlyExpand

Assessment of Chest High-Field Magnetic Resonance Imaging in Children and Young Adults With Noncystic Fibrosis Chronic Lung Disease: Comparison to High-Resolution Computed Tomography and Correlation
Objectives:Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has been proposed as a radiation-free alternative to high resolution computed tomography (HRCT) for the assessment and follow-up of chest disorders. ThusExpand

Diagnostic accuracy of chemical-shift MR imaging to differentiate between adrenal adenomas and non adenoma adrenal lesions
Purpose.The objective of this study was to evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of chemical–shift (CS) magnetic resonance (MR) imaging in the differential diagnosis of adenoma and nonadenoma adrenalExpand

Progression of lung disease in primary ciliary dyskinesia: Is spirometry less accurate than CT?
Despite its extensive use, there is no evidence that spirometry is useful in the assessment of progression of lung disease in primary ciliary dyskinesia (PCD). We hypothesize that high‐resolutionExpand

Sleep disordered breathing and airway disease in primary ciliary dyskinesia
Sleep‐disordered breathing (SDB) may develop in primary ciliary dyskinesia (PCD), leading to these diseases worsening one another.

Comparison Between Multidetector CT and High–Field 3T MR Imaging in Diagnostic and Tumour Extension Evaluation of Patients with Cholangiocarcinoma
Purpose To compare multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) with cholangiopancreatography (MRCP) findings in the diagnostic evaluation of patients withExpand
