Performing an MRI scan of the brain is a useful diagnosis method for many clinical specialties. When the brain degenerates, memory networks – such as factual, skilled, short-term and long-term – are often affected. Here at the London Imaging Centre, over the last few years we have seen an increase in referrals for MRI scans on patients with suspected dementia. Follow-up data out to 24 months for the first oral disease modifying therapy (DMT) licensed for treatment of multiple sclerosis (MS) continues to suggest that the efficacy and safety rivals that of the injectable agents that have been the MS treatment mainstay. Key Point: Long-term follow-up data are increasing for the first oral therapy, fingolimod, to demonstrate a disease modifying effect in multiple sclerosis (MS). This entry was posted in mdCurrent Conference Reports, Neurology, Pharmacology and tagged American Academy of Neurology, conference coverage, disease modifying therapy, fingolimod, injectables, multiple sclerosis, neurology, pharmacology. Telling apart an ageing brain from a dementia brain, as well as different types of dementia, can be hard during early stages of the disease. Dealing with these often confused or distressed patients is something our highly trained radiographers and specialised Neuroradiologists are accustomed to.
The most convincing evidence of sustained activity is being generated by studies with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) that show protection against new lesions and changes in brain morphology relative to placebo.

So far, despite reports of modest changes in blood pressure and heart rhythms, serious adverse effects remain extremely uncommon.
As research refines the use of MRI in dementia, we expect referrals for this safe and painless scan to keep increasing.

MRI shows brain abnormalities in migraine patients 0 By Radiological Society of North America on March 26, 2013 Mental Health A new study suggests that migraines are related to brain abnormalities present at birth and others that develop over time. The research is published online in the journal Radiology.Migraines are intense, throbbing headaches, sometimes accompanied by nausea, vomiting and sensitivity to light.

Some patients experience auras, a change in visual or sensory function that precedes or occurs during the migraine. More than 300 million people suffer from migraines worldwide, according to the World Health Organization.
Previous research on migraine patients has shown atrophy of cortical regions in the brain related to pain processing, possibly due to chronic stimulation of those areas. Filippi and colleagues used magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to acquire T2-weighted and 3-D T1-weighted brain images from 63 migraine patients and 18 healthy controls. There was only minimal anatomical overlap of cortical thickness and cortical surface area abnormalities, with cortical surface area abnormalities being more pronounced and distributed than cortical thickness abnormalities. They are also studying the effects of treatments on the observed modifications of cortical folding and looking at pediatric patients with migraine to assess whether the abnormalities represent a biomarker of the disease.
