Abstract

To investigate a possible relationship between the severity of pathological and radiological lesions in diffusion-weighted MRI (DWI) we compared DWI findings from 6 sequential brain MRI scans with pathological features of numerous tissue blocks of different cortical and subcortical regions in a case of autopsy-proven sporadic CJD. Whereas DWI and pathological examination revealed multifocal, cortical and deep hyperintensities at corresponding localizations, no correlation between the degree of severity of radiologically visible and pathological damage was found.The characteristic focal involvement and extension of lesions of the cortex and the basal ganglia bilaterally shown by DWI may be an argument for the spreading of the disease per contiguitatem.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
