To compare the susceptibility of different brain structures in patients with haemodialysis with that in healthy controls using susceptibility mapping and explore the correlations with neuropsychiatric tests and clinical parameters. Fifty three patients with haemodialysis and forty-five age-and sex-matched healthy controls were recruited in this prospective study. Susceptibility maps (SM) were reconstructed from original phase data and used to compare the susceptibility of different brain… CONTINUE READING
