Quantitative magnetization transfer characteristics of the human cervical spinal cord in vivo: application to adrenomyeloneuropathy.

Abstract

Magnetization transfer (MT) imaging has assessed myelin integrity in the brain and spinal cord; however, quantitative MT (qMT) has been confined to the brain or excised tissue. We characterized spinal cord tissue with qMT in vivo, and as a first application, qMT-derived metrics were examined in adults with the genetic disorder Adrenomyeloneuropathy (AMN… (More)
