    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Mr Imaging; DTI; Parkinson s disease; Progressive supranuclear palsy; Multiple system atrophy;

    Abstract : Objectives: To identify diagnostic and prognostic biomarkers in the cerebral white (WM) and the deep grey matter (GM) in patients with Parkinson’s disease (PD) and atypical parkinsonian syndromes (APS) using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Methods: Patients with a clinical diagnosis of PD, multiple system atrophy (MSA) and progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP) were included in the study. READ MORE

  2. 2. Refractory angina pectoris. Patient characteristics, safety and long-term effects of spinal cord stimulation

    University dissertation from Göteborg University

    Author : Paulin Andréll; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2005]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Angina pectoris; Deep white matter disease; Epidemiology; Health care costs; Morbidity; Mortality; Quality of life; Spinal cord stimulation;

    Abstract : Refractory angina pectoris has been defined as severe angina pectoris due to coronary artery disease which cannot be controlled by conventional pharmacological or surgical therapy. The epidemiology of this condition is virtually unknown. During the last decades, additional treatment options have been developed for this condition. READ MORE

  3. 3. Magnetic resonance imaging in dementia : A study of brain white matter changes

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Center for Surgical Sciences CFSS

    Author : Lena Bronge; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2001]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Non-specific white matter changes (WMC) in the brain are common findings in the elderly population. Although they are frequently seen in non-demented persons, WMC seem to be more common in demented patients.The significance of these changes, as well as their pathophysiological background is incompletely understood.

  4. 4. Cerebral microbleeds and cognitive impairment

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Clinical Science, Intervention and Technology

    Author : Sara Shams; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2016]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Background: With increasingly ageing populations comes an increased prevalence of cognitive impairment and dementia. The pathophysiology behind dementia is still unknown, and there is no cure. READ MORE

  5. 5. Quantitative Magnetic Resonance Imaging of the Brain Applications for Tissue Segmentation and Multiple Sclerosis

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Janne West; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2014]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a sensitive technique for assessing white matter (WM) lesions in multiple sclerosis (MS), but there is a low correlation between MRI findings and clinical disability. Because of this, other pathological changes are of interest, including changes in normal appearing white matter (NAWM) and diffusely abnormal white matter (DAWM). READ MORE
