We assessed the relationship between gray matter (GM) and white matter (WM) atrophy and clinical status in early relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis (MS) patients over 5 years. A group of 181 patients who participated in the ASA (Avonex-Steroid-Azathioprine) study and had complete clinical and MRI assessments over 2 and 5 years was investigated. One(More)
Recent news coverage on pricing portrays the importance of price fairness. This article conceptually integrates the theoretical foundations of fairness perceptions and summarizes empirical findings on price fairness. The authors identify research issues and gaps in existing knowledge on buyers' perceptions of price fairness. The article concludes with(More)
PURPOSE Approximately 25% of radical prostatectomies performed for stage T1c disease show potentially insignificant prostate cancer. We previously reported the use of serum prostate specific antigen (PSA) density and needle biopsy findings to predict potentially insignificant cancer. We now evaluate whether using free/total serum PSA levels along with(More)
Multiple sclerosis is characterized by the dual pathological processes of inflammation and neurodegeneration. Conventional MRI techniques are considered the best tools for assessing and monitoring lesion burden and inflammation but are limited in their ability to assess axonal loss. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a simple high-resolution technique(More)
OBJECTIVE There are conflicting reports of adverse HIV-associated alterations in white matter integrity as measured by diffusion tensor imaging (DTI). We sought to address these conflicting reports by assessing, on a voxel-by-voxel basis, HIV-associated regional changes in radiologically defined normal-appearing white matter (NAWM) integrity using(More)
The purpose of this study was to compare the clinical and quantitative magnetic resonance imaging metrics of paediatric-onset multiple sclerosis to adult-onset multiple sclerosis. It was a prospective comparison of clinical and magnetic resonance imaging characteristics of two paediatric onset multiple sclerosis and two adult onset multiple sclerosis groups(More)
BACKGROUND There is growing evidence for the concept of multiple sclerosis (MS) as an inflammatory neurodegenerative disease, with a different pattern of atrophy evolution in grey matter (GM) and white matter (WM) tissue compartments. OBJECTIVE We aimed to investigate the evolution of different MRI measures in early relapsing-remitting patients with MS(More)
We aimed to investigate whether mild cognitive impairment (MCI) in Parkinson's disease (PD) is characterized by region-specific gray matter (GM) atrophy and to explore correlations between GM and cognition in PD. Magnetic resonance images of 42 newly diagnosed PD patients (of which 11 had MCI) and 37 normal controls were analyzed using voxel-based(More)
Previous studies in patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) revealed increased lesion count and volume on 3 T compared to 1.5 T. Morphological and spatial lesion characteristics between 1.5 T and 3 T have not been examined. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of changing from a 1.5 T to a 3 T MRI scanner on the number, volume and spatial(More)
Cortical and subcortical atrophy occurs in multiple sclerosis (MS) and relates to clinical outcomes. FreeSurfer, a voxel-based automated software for brain reconstruction was used to investigate the extent of subcortical and cortical atrophy in 71 MS and 17 clinically isolated syndrome (CIS) patients, and 38 normal controls (NC), and to relate group(More)
