BACKGROUND Intracellular pH provides information on homeostatic mechanisms in neurons and glial cells. The aim of this study was to define pH of the brain of male volunteers using phosphorus magnetic resonance spectroscopy ((31)PMRS) and to compare two methods of calculating this value. MATERIAL/METHODS In this study, 35 healthy, young, male volunteers(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to determine (31)PMRS reference spectrum and intracellular pH of calf muscles in the dominant limb of healthy, young, male volunteers before and after intense physical effort. MATERIAL/METHODS Examinations were performed with a 1.5 T MR system. FID CSI (Free Induction Decay Chemical Shift Imaging) sequence was used(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this 1HMRS study was to identify any potential regional differences in the metabolic spectrum in the brains of healthy children. MATERIAL/METHODS Forty-nine healthy children aged 6-15 years (mean 11.6 years) were examined, including 21 girls and 28 boys. A 1.5T MR system (xi Signa HD 1.5T General Electric) was used in patient(More)
The aim of this (1)HMRS study was to identify hemispheric asymmetries in metabolismus in healthy children. The study group consisted of children of both sexes aged 6 to 15. Concentrations of 6 metabolites occurring in the brain were determined for 6 locations: hippocampus, frontal lobe, and basal ganglia in the left and right hemispheres. There were no(More)
The article describes a functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) examination and the further data analysis. Inspiration to take an interest in fMRI diagnostics was its cognitive and clinical use which was observed by the author during the student practice at the Cracow University Hospital Department of Radiology (1.5 T SIGNA EXCITE 2 Echospeed MR(More)
