ZusammenfassungDie Magnetresonanztomographie (MRT) des Gehirns kommt als strukturelles bildgebendes Verfahren in der Psychiatrie und Neurologie zur breiten Anwendung. Bei der Demenz vom Alzheimer-Typ (AD) trägt die MRT zur Verbesserung der klinischen Diagnosestellung im Rahmen der Mehrebenendiagnostik [1] und zur differentialdiagnostischen Abgrenzung anderer mit einem dementiellen Syndrom einhergehender Erkrankungen bei. Neu entwickelte Verfahren der MRT-gestützten Volumetrie kortikaler und…

Klinische Aspekte der Alzheimer-Krankheit
Die Alzheimer-Krankheit (AK) ist in den letzten 15 Jahren zu einem Schwerpunkt des medizinischen und neurowissenschaftlichen Interesses geworden. Bedeutsame Erkenntnisfortschritte auf diesem Gebiet
Biologische Untersuchungen in der Differentialdiagnostik kognitiver und depressiver Störungen im Alter
Dabei kann es sich sowohl um die krankheits-charakterisierenden kognitiven und depressiven Kernsymptome als auch um begleitende Symptome handeln, wie beispielsweise psychovegetative Storungen oder StOrungen des Antriebes sowie des Sozialverhaltens.
Corpus Callosum Measurement as an in Vivo Indicator for Neocortical Neuronal Integrity, but not White Matter Pathology, in Alzheimer's Disease
This research presents a novel and scalable approach called “Smartphone Neuroimaging for Aging and Dementia” that allows for real-time assessment of the dynamic response of the immune system to age-related decline.
Neuroanatomical and Neuropathological Basis of Mental Illness
The role of neuropathology in the study of classical psychiatric diseases such as the schizophrenias, affective disorders, personality disorders, anxiety disorders, and obsessive-compulsive disorder


Do white matter changes on MRI and CT differentiate vascular dementia from Alzheimer's disease?
In vivo effects of three calcium blockers on chickens with inherited muscular dystrophy and the effects of verapamil on the soleus and gastronemius muscle of the cat in vivo are studied.
Quantitative analysis of PET and MRI data in normal aging and Alzheimer's disease: atrophy weighted total brain metabolism and absolute whole brain metabolism as reliable discriminators.
Although the metabolic rate per unit weight of the brain is unchanged in AD compared to controls, atrophy weighted total brain metabolism and absolute whole brain metabolism are significantly affected and both indices may prove to be a sensitive correlate for cognitive dysfunction in AD.
Magnetic resonance imaging hyperintensities in Alzheimer's disease.
To the Editor. —This letter is a commentary on Leys and coworkers' article in the May 1990 issue of theArchives. 1 We commend Leys and coworkers on their effort to determine the significance of white
Temporal lobe atrophy on magnetic resonance imaging in the diagnosis of early Alzheimer's disease.
The presence of rated atrophy in selected temporal structures makes the diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease more likely, but the absence does not rule out the possibility of early Alzheimer’s disease.
White matter hyperintensity in neurologically asymptomatic subjects
Based on multiple regression analysis, age was the most significant variable influencing the frequency of WMH, followed by hypertension, implying that WMH lesions may simply be a phenomenon of aging, or may be an indicator of prepathologic state in an ischemic brain.
White matter lesions on magnetic resonance imaging in clinically diagnosed Alzheimer's disease. Evidence for heterogeneity.
The data lend support to the growing body of evidence that AD is heterogeneous, consisting of at least two types, and two forms can be distinguished: a 'pure' form of the disease, usually with early disease onset, and no more white matter changes than normal for age; and a 'mixed' form,Usually with disease onset later in life, and showing more white Matter changes on MRI than normalFor age.
Memory disorders in probable Alzheimer's disease: the role of hippocampal atrophy as shown with MRI.
The volume of the hippocampal formation was selectively related to quantitative and qualitative aspects of memory performance in patients with probable Alzheimer's disease.
Brain MR: pathologic correlation with gross and histopathology. 1. Lacunar infarction and Virchow-Robin spaces.
MR studies of gross and microscopic pathology of lacunae and dilated Virchow-Robin spaces are useful in correlating MR and pathologic findings, however, changes resulting from the fixation process must be considered when postmortem and in vivo MR findings are correlated.
MRI of amygdala fails to diagnose early Alzheimer's disease.
MRI of amygdala fails to diagnose early Alzheimer's disease accurately and the amygdala was atrophied in all the elderly study groups with atrophy being strongest in the AD group.
