Multiple sclerosis: investigating early neural changes with advanced MRI
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a common neurological disorder, pathologically characterised by the presence of inflammatory demyelinating lesions, and axonal degeneration. Approximately 85% of clinically definite MS patients ...
Tremor in multiple sclerosis: neuroimaging perspective
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a common autoimmune disorder of the central nervous system (CNS), characterised by inflammation, demyelination and neurodegeneration. The clinical presentation and disease course of MS is ...
The preoperative MRI assessment of adult intracranial diffuse gliomas
MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging), is an integral part of the management of intracranial diffuse gliomas, consisting of both astrocytomas and oligodendrogliomas, and ongoing improvements in MRI technology continually enhance ...
Effect of physical activity on progression of cerebrovascular disease in older adults at risk or alzheimer's disease
Objective: Alzheimer's disease (AD) is a form of dementia without cure. Dementias are the only condition out of the top 10 causes of mortality worldwide without cure and represent a significant health burden. White matter ...
The associations between physical activity and magnetic resonance imaging in people at risk of Alzheimer's disease
The world’s ageing population is growing rapidly, and although longevity is a positive development, this involves an increasing prevalence of neurodegenerative diseases including dementias such as Alzheimer’s Disease (AD). ...
Longitudinal volumetric analysis of white matter hyperintensities on magnetic resonance imaging in aging and Alzheimer’s dementia
The experience of neurocognitive aging can be highly variable between individuals, with some passing into their twilight years with intact and healthy cognition while others find their mental faculties perceptibly dimmed ...
