A 40-year-old man with no history of trauma or previous sinus surgery complained sudden right diplopia after vigorous sneezing. The patient was submitted elsewhere to a MRI study for persisting diplopia, with inconclusive findings. One week later the patient was submitted to a maxillofacial cone beam CT (CBCT) in our Institution. A blowout fracture of the right orbital floor and lateral orbital wall with an intact orbital rim and a ipsilateral maxillary sinus effusion with an air liquid level, were detected at the CBCT study...

Imaging in thyroid eye disease (TED) is used to exclude other diagnoses, assess for apical crowding and plan surgery. But to quantify TED activity objectively, subjective clinical scoring assessments remain the norm. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) T2-relaxation times correlate with extra-ocular muscle (EOM) inflammation, but are confounded by signal from fat. We investigated whether T2-relaxation mapping in combination with fat fraction (FF) measurements could quantify disease activity in EOMs objectively...

BACKGROUND: Metastases to the orbit occur rarely in midgut neuroendocrine tumor (NET) patients with only 20 cases reported to date. Patients typically present with bilateral involvement of the recti muscles and experience symptoms such as diplopia, proptosis, and decreased vision. Although orbital MRI remains the gold standard for imaging orbital disease, many orbital lesions are now detected on somatostatin-receptor (SSTR) based imaging such as 68Ga-DOTATATE PET-CT. CASE PRESENTATIONS: Patient 1 is a 72 year-old female with a well-differentiated G3 ileal NET who was incidentally diagnosed with orbital metastases during a hospitalization for pre-septal cellulitis in 2018...

Recently, revised diagnostic criteria for Parkinson's disease (PD) were introduced (Postuma et al., 2015). Yet, except for well-established dopaminergic imaging, validated imaging biomarkers for PD are still missing, though they could improve diagnostic accuracy. We conducted systematic meta-analyses to identify PD-specific markers in whole-brain structural magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), [18F]-fluorodeoxyglucose-positron emission tomography (FDG-PET) and diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) studies. Overall, 74 studies were identified including 2323 patients and 1767 healthy controls...

Introduction  Surgical treatment of petrous apex chondrosarcoma is challenging due to the location of the tumor. Using an endoscopic technique for tumor resection is favored since it provides a minimally invasive approach. Case Presentation  A 57 years old female was admitted for acute onset of left abducens nerve palsy and occasional headache mainly on the left side of the retro-orbital area with some radiation to the left occiput. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and computed tomography (CT), at the time of admission, were showed lytic lesion on the left petrous apex and left part of the clivus...

Anatomical studies of SCI using Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) report diverging observations, from 'no changes' to 'tissue atrophy in motor and non-motor regions.' These discrepancies among studies can be attributed to heterogeneity in extent, level and post-injury duration observed within the SCI population. But, no studies have investigated structural changes associated with different levels of injury (paraplegia vs. tetraplegia). High-resolution MRI images were processed using Voxel-Based Morphometry technique to compare regional GM volume (GMV) between 16 complete paraplegia and 7 complete tetraplegia SCI subjects scanned within two years of injury when compared to 22 age-matched healthy controls using one-way Analysis of Covariance (ANCOVA)...

Background: The chronic phase of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and the limited effectiveness of existing treatments creates the need for the development of potential biomarkers to predict response to antidepressant medication at an early stage. However, findings at present focus on acute therapeutic effect without following-up the long-term clinical outcome of PTSD. So far, studies predicting the long-term clinical outcome of short-term treatment based on both pre-treatment and post-treatment functional MRI in PTSD remains limited...

The combination of positron emission tomography (PET) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) provides a benefit for diagnostic imaging. Still, attenuation correction (AC) is a challenge in PET/MRI compared to stand-alone PET and PET-computed tomography (PET/CT). In the absence of photonic transmission sources, AC in PET/MRI is usually based on retrospective segmentation of MR images or complex additional MR-sequences. However, most methods available today are still challenged by either the incorporation of cortical bone or substantial anatomical variations of subjects...
