Iron Content in Deep Gray Matter as a Function of Age Using Quantitative Susceptibility Mapping: A Multicenter Study

Iron Content in Deep Gray Matter as a Function of Age Using Quantitative Susceptibility Mapping: A Multicenter Study

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of resolution on iron content using quantitative susceptibility mapping (QSM); to verify the consistency of QSM across field strengths and manufacturers in evaluating the iron content of deep gray matter (DGM) of the human brain using subjects from multiple sites; and to establish a susceptibility baseline as a function of age for each DGM structure using both a global and regional iron analysis.

Revealing vascular abnormalities and measuring small vessel density in multiple sclerosis lesions using USPIO

Revealing vascular abnormalities and measuring small vessel density in multiple sclerosis lesions using USPIO

In this study, an ultra-small superparamagnetic iron oxide (USPIO) contrast agent, Ferumoxytol, was administered to induce an increase in susceptibility for both arteries and veins to help better reveal the cerebral microvasculature. The purpose of this work was to examine the presence of vascular abnormalities and vascular density in MS lesions using high-resolution susceptibility weighted imaging (SWI).

Quantifying Tissue Properties of the Optic Radiations Using Strategically Acquired Gradient Echo Imaging and Enhancing the Contrast Using Diamagnetic Susceptibility Weighted Imaging

Quantifying Tissue Properties of the Optic Radiations Using Strategically Acquired Gradient Echo Imaging and Enhancing the Contrast Using Diamagnetic Susceptibility Weighted Imaging

Visualization of the optic radiations is of clinical importance for diagnosing many diseases and depicting their anatomic structures for neurosurgical interventions. In this study, we quantify proton density, T1, T2*, and susceptibility of the optic radiation fiber bundles in a series of 10 healthy control participants using strategically acquired gradient echo imaging.
