Novel CNS Imaging Techniques

Argyropoulou Maria

Novel CNS imaging techniques is a fast advancing field with frequent new developments in scanner’s hardware, protocols, clinical indications, and post-processing techniques. These techniques are designed to focus on the assessment of functional tissue characteristics, such as neuronal activity (functional MRI- fMRI), microstructural properties (diffusion tensor imaging-DTI) and tissue perfusion (DSC perfusion, ASL). fMRI reveals brain activation during performance of beha...

Novel Techniques in Diagnostics of Bone Strength

Crabtree Nicola

There are several different techniques for assessing bone strength and fracture susceptibility in children namely; dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry (DXA), quantitative computed tomography (QCT), plain radiography and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The most readily available technique and recommended by the International Society of Clinical Densitometry (ISCD) is DXA. The advantage of DXA is that it is widely available, affords the child a low radiation dose and can assess f...
