The pulvinar sign on magnetic resonance imaging in variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease.

Abstract

BACKGROUND There is a need for an accurate non-invasive diagnostic test for variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (vCJD). We investigated the sensitivity and specificity of bilateral pulvinar high signal on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) for the diagnosis of vCJD. METHODS MRI from patients with vCJD and controls (patients with suspected CJD) were analysed… (More)
