High-resolution magic angle spinning (HR-MAS) 1H NMR spectroscopy of intact human liver needle biopsies has not been previously reported. HR-MAS NMR spectra collected on 17 specimens with tissue amounts between approximately 0.5 and 12 mg showed very good spectral resolution and signal-to-noise ratios. One-dimensional 1H spectra revealed many intense(More)
Lower levels of N-acetylaspartate (NAA), a marker of axonal damage, have been found in the normal-appearing white matter (NAWM) of relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis (RRMS) patients with low physical disability. However, its relation to the clinical status of these patients remains unclear. We explored the association between NAA levels [normalized to(More)
High-resolution magic angle spinning (HR-MAS) one- and two-dimensional 1H and 13C nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy has been used to study intact glioblastoma (GBM) brain tumour tissue. The results were compared with in vitro chemical extract and in vivo spectra. The resolution of 1H one-dimensional, 1H TOCSY and 13C HSQC HR-MAS spectra is(More)
OBJECTIVE Wallerian degeneration in normal appearing white matter in early relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis (RRMS), and its correlation with the number of relapses and disease duration. Background Recent pathological studies have demonstrated Wallerian degeneration in normal appearing white matter (NAWM) in multiple sclerosis (MS), in established(More)
Magnetic resonance spectroscopic imaging (MRSI) is a non-invasive imaging technique that provides metabolic information on brain tumor. This biochemical information can be processed and presented as density maps of several metabolites, among them N-acetylaspartate (marker of neuronal viability), choline (marker of membrane turnover), creatine (related to(More)
JUSTIFICATION Automatic brain tumor classification by MRS has been under development for more than a decade. Nonetheless, to our knowledge, there are no published evaluations of predictive models with unseen cases that are subsequently acquired in different centers. The multicenter eTUMOUR project (2004-2009), which builds upon previous expertise from the(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the relationship between the spectroscopically measured axonal damage in the normal-appearing white matter of the brainstem, the total brain T2-hyperintense lesion volume (T2LV), and disability in patients with early relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis (RRMS). METHODS Forty-three RRMS patients and 10 sex- and age-matched healthy(More)
1H magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) allows accurate and non-invasive in vivo metabolic study, and is a useful tool for the diagnosis of different forms of dementias. Cognitive impairment pathologies have been almost exclusively studied with MRS by comparison with healthy without a global comparison amongst Alzheimer disease (AD), vascular dementia,(More)
Molecular imaging has become during the last years in an important tool for supporting cancer diagnosis and prognosis. PET and SPECT are the most common molecular imaging techniques, although very promising and specific biological molecular agent contrast for CT and MRI are being recently developed. However, the above imaging techniques require exogenous(More)
A new fast and accurate tissue typing technique has recently been successfully applied to prostate MR spectroscopic imaging (MRSI) data. This technique is based on canonical correlation analysis (CCA), a statistical method able to simultaneously exploit the spectral and spatial information characterizing the MRSI data. Here, the performance of CCA is(More)
