Evolution of the lesions during three years

Post by frodo » Mon Jun 25, 2018 11:48 pm

This is a french study about how lesions evolve seeing by MRI. The article is in PDF and freely available.


Abstract : Obtaining information on condition of tissue microstructures (such as myelin, intra/extra cellular cells, free water) can provide important insights into MS lesion. However, MRI voxels are heterogeneous in terms of tissue microstructure due to the limited imaging resolution owing to existing physical limitations of MRI scanners. Here we evaluated a multi-compartment T2 relaxometry model and then use it to study the evolution of enhancing (USPIO and gadolinium positive) and non-enhancing lesions in 6 MS patients with CIS characteristics over a period 3 years with 7 follow-up scans post baseline.

This time lapse video spans a 12 month time frame of someone with RRMS. It is quite fascinating!
It is interesting that they (lesions) can grow, shrink, and even disappear over a short period of time.
