BACKGROUND Evidence about whether white blood cell (WBC) or its subtypes can act as a biomarker to predict the ischemic stroke events in the general population is scanty, particularly in Asian populations. The aim of this study is to establish the predictive ability of total WBC count or subtypes for long-term ischemic stroke events in the cohort population(More)
Degeneration of motor neurons and their associated axons is a hallmark of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, but reliable noninvasive lesion detection is lacking. In vivo diffusion tensor imaging was performed to evaluate neurodegeneration in the brainstem and cervical spinal cord of wild-type and G93A-SOD1 transgenic mice, an animal model of amyotrophic(More)
MR imaging can leverage a wide variety of intrinsic contrast mechanisms to provide detailed information regarding the anatomy, function, physiology, and metabolism of biological tissues. However, because of low sensitivity, many experiments that reveal higher-order structure and function have been limited due to inherent trade-offs between data acquisition(More)
