Resting-state functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) is a recent breakthrough in neuroimaging research able to describe "in vivo" the spontaneous baseline neuronal activity characterized by blood oxygen level dependent (BOLD) signal fluctuations at slow frequency (0.01-0.1Hz) that, in the absence of any task, forms spatially distributed functional(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of the present study was to verify whether drugs injected into the endolymphatic sac (ES) can reach the cochlea and possibly treat inner ear disorders. STUDY DESIGN Prospective cohort study. SETTING Tertiary referral center, Otolaryngology Department, University of Verona. SUBJECTS AND METHODS Patients with Ménière's disease (MD) who(More)
To verify whether injection of substances into the endolymphatic sac (ES) diffuses into the endolymphatic compartments of the human inner ear and in particular to the endolymphatic space of the scala media (ESp-SM), as demonstrated in animals, an exploratory investigation with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and intraoperative electrocochleographic(More)
BACKGROUND Although some Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) studies have investigated the relationship between clinical severity and neuroanatomical alterations in patients with schizophrenia (SCZ), the biological signature associated with illness severity in schizophrenia is still uncertain. Therefore, this study aims to investigate structural brain(More)
OBJECTIVE Anatomical alterations in the superior temporal gyrus have been consistently reported in patients with schizophrenia, and they have mostly been linked to positive symptoms, including hallucinations and thought disorders. The superior temporal gyrus is considered one of the most asymmetric and lateralized structure of the human brain, and the(More)
It is still not clear whether brain hemodynamics plays a role in the functional and structural alterations in schizophrenia, since prior imaging studies showed conflicting findings. In this study we non-invasively explored cerebral and cerebellar lobe perfusion in the largest population of participants with schizophrenia thus far studied with(More)
To illustrate the availability, effectiveness, and practical use of Open-Source tools in developing a radiology paper from its beginning to its presentation and publication. Practical use of a complete set of Open-Source applications for writing, e-mail corresponding, slide show, image retrieval, and manipulation is shown by simulating a scientific paper(More)
