Unmyelinated tactile afferents signal touch and project to insular cortex
TLDR
Findings identify CT as a system for limbic touch that may underlie emotional, hormonal and affiliative responses to caress-like, skin-to-skin contact between individuals.
Vertebroplasty: cement leakage into the disc increases the risk of new fracture of adjacent vertebral body.
TLDR
Leakage of cement into the disk during vertebroplasty increases the risk of a new fracture of adjacent vertebral bodies.
Intrathecal release of pro‐ and anti‐inflammatory cytokines during stroke
TLDR
An intrathecal production of proinflammatory and immunoregulatory cytokines in patients with stroke is demonstrated, supporting the notion of localized immune response to the acute brain lesion.
Percentage Signal Recovery Derived from MR Dynamic Susceptibility Contrast Imaging Is Useful to Differentiate Common Enhancing Malignant Lesions of the Brain
TLDR
PSR appears to be a parameter that helps in differentiating intracerebral malignant lesions such as GBM, metastases, and lymphoma.
Normal pressure hydrocephalus: vascular white matter changes on MR images must not exclude patients from shunt surgery.
TLDR
The presence of DWMH or subcortical lacunar infarctions in NPH did not predict a poor outcome from shunt surgery and should not be used as exclusion criteria for shunting.
Early intrathecal production of interleukin-6 predicts the size of brain lesion in stroke.
TLDR
This study demonstrates an intrathecal production of IL-6 and IL-1 beta in patients with stroke, supporting the notion of localized inflammatory response to acute brain lesion, and can be used as a prognostic tool, predicting the size of the brain damage before it is possible to accurately visualize it with radiological methods.
Effects of number of diffusion gradient directions on derived diffusion tensor imaging indices in human brain.
TLDR
In vivo measurements in the human brain to compare different clinical scan protocols and to evaluate their effects on the calculated DTI indices found that for ROI analyses, different NDGDs lead to similar values of FA and D but different eigenvalues.
White matter changes in normal pressure hydrocephalus and Binswanger disease: specificity, predictive value and correlations to axonal degeneration and demyelination
TLDR
In spite of a refined quantification method, NPH and BD patients exhibited similar MRI changes, indicating a common pathophysiological pattern, and the question of how to treat BD patients is raised.
MR diffusion tensor and perfusion-weighted imaging in preoperative grading of supratentorial nonenhancing gliomas.
TLDR
The combination of mean FA and maximal FA based on the linear discriminant analysis improved the diagnostic accuracy and were better than maximal rCBV ratio, mean ADC, and minimum ADC.
