Perfusion MRI demonstrates crossed-cerebellar diaschisis in sickle cell disease


O'Gorman, R L; Siddiqui, A; Alsop, D C; Jarosz, J M (2010). Perfusion MRI demonstrates crossed-cerebellar diaschisis in sickle cell disease. Pediatric Neurology, 42(6):437-440.

Abstract

Arterial spin labeling is a fully noninvasive magnetic resonance perfusion imaging method, ideally suited to pediatric perfusion imaging. We describe an 8-year-old boy with sickle cell disease, extensive right-hemispheric cerebral infarction, and crossed-cerebellar diaschisis apparent on arterial spin labeling perfusion magnetic resonance imaging. To our knowledge, this is the first case of crossed-cerebellar diaschisis demonstrated with arterial spin labeling, highlighting the potential value of perfusion magnetic resonance imaging in the clinical evaluation and follow-up of crossed-cerebellar diaschisis, and the suitability of arterial spin labeling methods for routine perfusion imaging in pediatric patients.

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.
