Diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging in diagnosis of Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease.


BACKGROUND Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD), a rare disease, is uncharacterized by computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). This study was aimed to evaluate the diffusion-weighted MRI (DWI) manifestations of CJD and to discuss their diagnostic value. METHODS The findings of T(1)-weighted MRI (T(1)WI), T(2)-weighted MRI (T(2)WI), DWI… (More)
