Phosphorus (31P) magnetic resonance spectroscopy and magnetic resonance imaging were used to study the intracellular metabolism, circulation, and morphology in the brains of 3 patients with clinical brain death syndrome due to traumatic brain damage, subarachnoid hemorrhage, and acute occlusive hydrocephalus caused by a colloid cyst. Magnetic resonance spectra were characterized by a complete absence of ATP and were dominated by an intense inorganic phosphate signal. Magnetic resonance imaging… CONTINUE READING
