Moyamoya disease: diagnosis with three-dimensional time-of-flight MR angiography

I YamadaS Suzuki


Twelve patients with moyamoya disease were studied with three-dimensional time-of-flight magnetic resonance (MR) angiography, and the findings were compared with results obtained with conventional arteriography. Of a total of 24 supraclinoid internal carotid arteries studied, 21 arteries (88%) were accurately evaluated with MR angiography and in three arteries the extent of occlusive disease was overestimated. Of a total of 72 large branch basal cerebral vessels, including the bilateral anterior, middle, and posterior cerebral arteries, 61 arteries (85%) were accurately evaluated with MR angiography and in 11 arteries the extent of occlusive disease was overestimated. While conventional arteriography showed basal cerebral moyamoya vessels in all 24 hemispheres, MR angiography showed moyamoya vessels in 20 of these. Of a total of 28 large leptomeningeal and transdural collateral vessels, 18 were identified with MR angiography. In the one surgical collateral vessel evaluated, MR angiography successfully showed its patency. MR angiography may have value in following disease progression and, perhaps, in evaluation of surgical bypass patency.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia. Here is the latest research on the nuclear pore complex in ALS and FTD.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule. Discover the latest research on molecular barcoding here.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Pluripotency refers to the ability of a cell to develop into three primary germ cell layers of the embryo. This feed focuses on the mechanisms that underlie the evolution of pluripotency. Here is the latest research.

Position Effect Variegation

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.
