Fifteen multiple sclerosis patients were examined by diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) to determine fractional anisotropy (FA) and apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) in a superventricular volume of interest of 8 x 8 x 2 cm(3) containing gray matter (GM) and white matter (WM) tissue. Point resolved spectroscopy 2D-chemical shift imaging of the same volume was(More)
Primary progressive multiple sclerosis (ppMS; n=4) patients and controls (n=4) were examined by 1H magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) and diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) in order to map choline (Cho), creatine and N-acetylaspartate (NAA), the fractional anisotropy (FA) and the apparent diffusion constant (ADC). After chemical shift imaging (point-resolved(More)
The antidepressant fluoxetine stimulates astrocytic glycogenolysis, which serves as an energy source for axons. In multiple sclerosis patients fluoxetine administration may improve energy supply in neuron cells and thus inhibit axonal degeneration. In a preliminary pilot study, 15 patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) were examined by diffusion tensor(More)
Brain magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) and diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) in one patient with merosin-deficient congenital muscular dystrophy (MDCMD) revealed significant metabolite (choline, creatine, N-acetyl aspartate) level reductions, fractional anisotropy (FA) reduction and increased apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) in the white matter(More)
Diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) is reported for the first time in a patient with Sjögren-Larsson syndrome, an autosomal recessive neurocutaneous disorder. Magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) revealed normal levels of choline, creatine and N-acetyl aspartate (NAA) and the characteristic lipid signals in the white matter brain tissue. Conventional MRI showed(More)
Quantitative brain MR spectroscopy (MRS) and diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) were used to characterize one patient with Sturge-Weber syndrome. Choline increases and N-acetylaspartate decreases were observed in pathologic frontal gray matter tissue compared to contralateral unaffected brain tissue without any change in the diffusion tensor imaging parameters(More)
