Inter-areal and ipsilateral cortical responses to tactile stimulation have not been well described in human S1 cortex. By taking advantage of the high signal-to-noise ratio at 7 T, we quantified blood oxygenation level dependent (BOLD) response patterns and time courses to tactile stimuli on individual distal finger pads at a fine spatial scale, and(More)
OBJECTIVE We aimed to study the value of blood oxygen level-dependent functional magnetic resonance imaging (BOLD-fMRI) in assessing cerebral hemodynamic changes for moyamoya disease (MMD). METHODS We recruited 15 healthy volunteers, 15 patients with MMD without dyskinesia, and 30 patients with MMD who experienced paroxysmal limb dyskinesia. The BOLD-fMRI(More)
PURPOSE To assess the severity of cerebral hemodynamic impairment and hemodynamic improvements, after revascularization in moyamoya disease (MMD) by means of blood-oxygen-level dependent functional magnetic resonance imaging (BOLD-fMRI). MATERIALS AND METHODS BOLD-fMRI with median nerve electrical stimulation based on echo planar imaging was performed in(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE For Moyamoya disease (MMD) patients, accurate hemodynamic assessment is critical for treatment selection and efficacy assessment. This study aims to investigate the clinical value of mTI-ASL in assessing the cerebral hemodynamics of MMD patients before and after revascularization, relative to DSC-MRI. MATERIALS AND METHODS Forty-one(More)
PURPOSE To characterize the changes in cortical thickness of adult patients with moyamoya disease (MMD). METHODS 60 patients with MMD and 60 age and sex-matched healthy volunteers were recruited. Structural images were acquired by MRI. Freesurfer was used to measure cortical thickness in patients and controls, and this was compared with MRA scores and(More)
Neural substrates behind schizophrenia (SZ) and its heritability mediated by brain function are largely unknown. Cerebral blood flow (CBF), as a biomarker of activation in the brain, reflects the neuronal metabolism, and is promisingly used to detect cerebral alteration thereby shedding light on the features of individuals at high genetic risk. We performed(More)
INTRODUCTION The relationship between quantitative parameters of contrast-enhanced computed tomography (CT) and non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) progression remains controversial. We aimed to explore the usefulness of contrast-enhanced spiral CT scanning for confirming the time of tumour progression before targeted treatment of NSCLC. METHODS(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to explore the response to neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC) in nonconcentric shrinkage pattern of breast cancer (BC) patients using H-magnetic resonance spectroscopy. METHODS Twenty-five BC patients were the study cohort. All patients received AT-based regimen as first-line treatment. Tumor response to chemotherapy was(More)
