Advanced structural multimodal imaging of a patient with subcortical band heterotopia

Lohith G. Kini, Ilya M. Nasrallah, Carlos Coto, Lindsay C. Ferraro, Kathryn A. Davis
2016 Epilepsia Open  
Subcortical band heterotopia (SBH) is a disorder of neuronal migration most commonly due to mutations of the Doublecortin (DCX) gene. A range of phenotypes is seen, with most patients having some degree of epilepsy and intellectual disability. Advanced diffusion and structural magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) sequences may be useful in identifying heterotopias and dysplasias of different sizes in drug-resistant epilepsy. We describe a patient with SBH and drug-resistant epilepsy and investigate

Neurite density and dispersion in heterotopia was found to be more similar to white matter than to gray matter. Neurite density and dispersion maps obtained using diffusion imaging may be able to better characterize different subtypes of heterotopia.

2019 NeuroImage: Clinical  
The periventricular white matter (PVWM) is supplied by terminal distributions of small vessels and is particularly susceptible to developing white matter lesions (WML) associated with cerebral small vessel disease (CSVD). We obtained group-averaged cerebral blood flow (CBF) maps from Arterial Spin Labeled (ASL) perfusion MRI data obtained in 436 middle-aged (50.4 ± 3.5 years) subjects in the NHLBI CARDIA study and in 61 elderly (73.3 ± 6.9 years) cognitively normal subjects recruited from the

We constructed a white matter periventricular small vessel (PSV) region of interest (ROI) by empirically thresholding the group averaged CARDIA CBF map at CBF < 15 ml/100 g/min. Thereafter we compared CBF in the PSV ROI and in the remaining white matter (RWM) with the location and volume of WML measured with Fluid Attenuated Inversion Recovery (FLAIR) MRI. WM CBF was lower within WML than outside WML voxels (p < <0.0001) in both the PSV and RWM ROIs, however this difference was much smaller (p < <0.0001) in the PSV ROI than in the RWM suggesting a more homogenous reduction of CBF in the PSV region. Normalized WML volumes were significantly higher in the PSV ROI than in the RWM and in the elderly cohort as compared to the middle-aged cohort (p < <0.0001). Additionally, the PSV ROI showed a significantly (p = .001) greater increase in lesion volume than the RWM in the elderly ADC cohort than the younger CARDIA cohort. Considerable intersubject variability in PSV CBF observed in both study cohorts likely represents biological variability that may be predictive of future WML and/or cognitive decline. In conclusion, a data-driven PSV ROI defined by voxels with low perfusion in middle age defines a region with homogeneously reduced CBF that is particularly susceptible to progressive ischemic injury in elderly controls. PSV CBF may provide a mechanistically specific biomarker of CSVD.

Cross-sectional demographic differences in MRI markers of brain health are well established, but less is known about differences in rates of change, particularly in mid-life. We assessed demographic differences in midlife change of MRI measures of gray matter (GM) volume and perfusion, which are important early markers of late-life cognitive decline. We also assess the extent to which cardiovascular risk factors explain demographic differences. Method: Data are from a subsample attending the 25

Structural 3T MRI was used to quantify total GM as percent of intracranial volume. GM cerebral blood flow (CBF, ml/100gr/min) was measured using pseudo-continuous arterial spin labeling. To test for interaction between race and sex, multiple linear regression analysis was used entering MRI feature at follow-up as dependent variable and as independent variables: MRI feature at baseline, center, age, sex, race and the interaction term(race*sex). Next, MRI features at follow-up were compared amongst groups of race/sex with ANCOVA, adjusting for baseline MRI feature, center, age and additionally for cardiovascular health(CVH) according to the American Heart Association Life's Simple 7(LS7) metric. Result: The sample had mean baseline age 50.4(SD 3.5) years, 48.1% male, and 38.3% black. Over the 5-year follow-up period, GM volume and CBF significantly declined. Significant interaction between race and sex was observed for GM (P-interaction=0.0041), such that black men demonstrated a significantly larger volumetric decline than black women, whereas no significant sex differences were observed in whites. Race*sex interaction was also observed for CBF (P-interaction=0.023), such that men demonstrated a significantly larger decline in perfusion than women in both races, which associations were more pronounced in blacks. Adjustment for LS7-CVH metric attenuated results slightly but reported associations remained significant. Conclusion: Our results indicate sex/race specific patterns of midlife decline in cerebral GM volume and in perfusion, which were not fully explained by prevalent cardio-

Reported Differences Between Digital and Analog PET/CT Studies TO THE EDITOR: We read with interest the recent article by Koopman et al. entitled "Performance of Digital PET Compared with High-Resolution Conventional PET in Patients with Cancer" (1) published in the October issue of The Journal of Nuclear Medicine, describing the improved performance of the digital PET compared with the high-resolution analog PET in the detection of small lesions and image quality, which allows disease
more » ... . These results are in line with our previous published data, showing superior performance of the digital PET/CT over the analog PET/CT in the detection rate and image quality in a group of oncologic (2) and nononcologic patients. In the discussion section, Koopman et al. indicated that our study showed 22 additional small lesions (,10 mm) on digital PET images in 100 oncologic patients. Indeed, the detection performance was even superior since in 17 out of the 100 oncologic patients, neither the digital nor the analog PET/CT revealed radiotracer uptake suggestive of malignancy (PET-negative). Therefore, the detection performance of the digital PET/CT was superior to the analog PET/CT in detecting subcentimeter lesions (,10 mm) in 22 out of the 83 PET-positive patients (26.5%) (P 5 0.05, 95% confidence interval, 17.9-36.7). In addition, the authors considered invalid another previous study coming from our laboratory comparing the SUV max between the digital PET/CT and the analog PET/CT (3) because of the differences in reconstruction parameters between both systems. It is well known that various technical and physics issues, such as detector performance, voxel size, and reconstruction parameters, influence SUV measurements. However, the aim of our study was not to evaluate the influence of such factors on SUV measurements, but to compare under standard clinical conditions the values rendered by both systems. The results of Koopman et al. (1) are again in line with our previous results showing increase of the SUV max in the digital PET/CT as compared with the analog PET/CT. Koopman et al. compared digital and analog PET/CT using high-resolution reconstructions for both systems, whereas our study compared digital and analog PET/CT under standard clinical conditions as provided by the vendor (digital PET using high-resolution reconstructions and analog PET using standard-resolution reconstructions). We believe that in the next years, digital PET/CT will coexist with analog PET/CT, and differences in performance and SUV measurements must be considered in follow-up studies. Differences in clinical and research performance will guide the selection of the appropriate system for future given indications, with impact on the diagnosis and therapy assessment of oncologic and nononcologic diseases.
