Glaucoma is an optic neuropathy affecting the entire visual system. The understanding of the glaucoma mechanism and causes remains unresolved. Diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) has been used to analyze the optic nerve and optic radiation showing global fiber abnormalities associated with glaucoma. Nevertheless, the complex structure of the optic radiation and(More)
BACKGROUND In glaucoma, damage of retinal ganglion cells may continue to the linked optic radiations. This study investigates the correlation of glaucoma severity indicators with parameters of axonal and myelin integrity of the optic radiations. METHODS In this observational case-control study, 13 patients with normal-tension glaucoma, 13 patients with(More)
Purpose of this study was to evaluate with diffusion-tensor imaging (DTI) changes of radial diffusivity (RD) and fractional anisotropy (FA) in the optic nerve (ON) and optic radiation (OR) in glaucoma and to determine whether changes in RD and FA correlate with disease severity. Therefore, glaucoma patients and controls were examined using 3T. Regions of(More)
We assessed (1)H-MRS as a screening tool for detection of hippocampal sclerosis in patients with temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE). (1)H-MRS was carried out in the hippocampus of 23 patients with unilateral TLE. Metabolite alterations detected by (1)H-MRS correlated with degree of segmental neuronal cell loss and amount of astrogliosis. Positive correlation was(More)
Glaucoma is associated with axonal degeneration of the op-tic nerve leading to visual impairment. This impairment can progress to a complete vision loss. The transsynaptic disease spread in glaucoma extends the degeneration process to different parts of the visual pathway. Most of glaucoma diagnosis focuses on the eye analysis, especially in the retina. In(More)
RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES The objective of this study was to determine how metabolite values (total N-acetyl aspartate [tNAA], glutamate plus glutamine [Glx], total choline [tCho], myoinositol [mI], and total creatine [tCr]) vary across brain regions in healthy subjects. This study was implemented to create an internal reference database for patients with(More)
PURPOSE In this study, hippocampal metabolite alterations in (1)H-MR spectroscopy ((1)H-MRS) were correlated to the findings of intensive video-EEG monitoring and duration of seizure symptoms in patients with temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE). METHODS The 14 patients with mesial TLE and no pathological findings in imaging were investigated by (1)H-MRS.(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE MR perfusion-weighted imaging (PWI) has been extensively used to quantify cerebral perfusion deficits after the onset of focal ischemia. The present study tested whether a relative measure of cerebral blood flow such as is obtained with PWI is sufficient to predict irreversible tissue damage following focal cerebral ischemia and(More)
OBJECTIVE This study intended to determine associations between alterations of female sexual arousal as well as vaginal lubrication and the site of cerebral multiple sclerosis (MS) lesions. METHODS In 44 women with MS (mean age: 36.5 ± 9.9 years), we assessed their medical history and evaluated sexual function using the Female Sexual Function Index scores(More)

Malignant gliomas are one of the most devastating cancers in humans. One characteristic hallmark of malignant gliomas is their cellular heterogeneity with frequent genetic lesions and disturbed gene expression levels conferring selective growth advantage. Here, we report on the neuronal-associated growth promoting gene PRG3 executing oncogenic cooperation(More)
