STUDY OBJECTIVES To investigate gray matter volume and concentration and cerebral perfusion in people with untreated obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) while awake. DESIGN Voxel-based morphometry to quantify gray matter concentration and volume. Arterial spin labeling perfusion imaging to quantify cerebral perfusion. SETTING Lying supine in a 3-T magnetic resonance imaging scanner in the early afternoon. PARTICIPANTS 19 people with OSA (6 females, 13 males; mean age 56.7 y, range 41-70; mean… CONTINUE READING
