Obesity is in your head: MRI and weight gain clues

Date: Sep 1, 2018

Author: David Bradley

An examination of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and cognitive test data from 1,200 individuals, supplied as part of the Human Connectome Project shows that when it comes to weight gain, the problem may be mostly in our heads and in our genes.

Journal Highlight: Applications of PET‐MRI in musculoskeletal disease

Date: Aug 20, 2018

Author: spectroscopyNOW

Emerging applications of PET‐MRI in musculoskeletal disease have been reviewed, including clinical applications of malignant musculoskeletal disease, new opportunities involving nononcologic musculoskeletal disease and relevant technical considerations and challenges.

Multiple Sclerosis: MRI shows brain iron link

Date: Aug 1, 2018

Author: David Bradley

Researchers at the University at Buffalo in Buffalo, New York, USA have used a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) technique, quantitative susceptibility mapping, to measure the concentration of iron in the brains of multiple sclerosis patients. They examined 600 patients, 452 with early-stage disease, and 148 with more advanced disease, and found that when compared with the control group, the MS patients had higher levels of iron in the basal ganglia and lower levels of iron in the thalamus.

Journal Highlight: Diagnostic accuracy of magnetic resonance imaging for tumour staging of bladder cancer: Systematic review and meta‐analysis

Date: Jul 23, 2018

Author: spectroscopyNOW

The accuracy of MRI for local staging of bladder cancer for four clinical scenarios (T‐stage thresholds) has been assessed considered against current standards for clinical staging and secondarily to identify sources for variability in accuracy.

Healthy brain: MRI scans our indulgences

Date: Jul 1, 2018

Author: David Bradley

Many of us enjoy junk food, delicious but unhealthy. Over-indulgence can underpin many of the problems facing the modern human such as Type 2 diabetes, obesity, and cardiovascular disease. But, a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) study shows that our penchant for such food choice may not be a potentially character flaw but could be down to our neurobiology.

Journal Highlight: Susceptibility MRI captures nigral pathology in patients with parkinsonian syndromes

Date: Jun 25, 2018

Author: spectroscopyNOW

Susceptibility MRI measurements have been used to capture nigral pathologies associated with parkinsonian syndromes, reflecting pathological aspects of the disorders beyond iron such as α‐synuclein, which could be useful for diagnosing differential parkinsonian syndromes.

Gender dysphoria: MRI guide to distress reduction

Date: Jun 1, 2018

Author: David Bradley

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of brain structure and activity in transgender adolescents reveals the similarities in typical activation patterns of their desired gender, according to research presented at the European Society of Endocrinology annual meeting in May 2018.

Journal Highlight: Functional MRI technologies in the study of medication treatment effect on Alzheimer's disease

Date: May 21, 2018

Author: spectroscopyNOW

Current findings and the future role of functional MRI modalities for studying the treatment effects of various medications on Alzheimer's disease and mild cognitive impairment have been reviewed, focusing on medications that have been approved by FDA rather than new drugs undergoing trials.

Brain structure changes: Restless legs MRI

Date: May 1, 2018

Author: David Bradley

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has revealed that there are morphological differences in the structure of the somatosensory cortex and the thickness of the corpus callosum subdivisions that provide interhemispheric connections between the two somatosensory cortical areas of the brain in people who suffer with restless legs syndrome.

Journal Highlight: In vivo hyperpolarization transfer in a clinical MRI scanner

Date: Apr 23, 2018

Author: spectroscopyNOW

The purpose of this study was to investigate the feasibility of in vivo 13C→1H hyperpolarization transfer, which has significant potential advantages for detecting the distribution and metabolism of hyperpolarized 13C probes in a clinical MRI scanner.
