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

Prolonged impairment of regional contractile function after resolution of exercise-induced angina. Evidence of myocardial stunning in patients with coronary artery disease.
BACKGROUND Delayed recovery of contractile function in spite of normal perfusion (ie, "stunning") has been described in animal models of exercise-induced myocardial ischemia. Therefore, weExpand

Thyroid V30 predicts radiation-induced hypothyroidism in patients treated with sequential chemo-radiotherapy for Hodgkin's lymphoma.
PURPOSE Hypothyroidism (HT) is a frequent late side effect of Hodgkin's lymphoma (HL) therapy. The purpose of this study is to determine dose-volume constraints that correlate with functionalExpand
