The article presents a study which investigates the association between hypoperfusion and TI-hypointense lesion distributions in white matter in multiple sclerosis (MS). An overview of the methods of the study is given. It observes cerebral blood flow clusters in the white matter. The association between hypoperfusion and TI-hypointense lesions is suggested.

    Until recently, no direct comparison between [15O]water positron emission tomography (PET) and arterial spin labeling (ASL) for measuring cerebral blood flow (CBF) was possible. With the introduction of integrated, hybrid magnetic resonance (MR)-PET scanners, such a comparison becomes feasible....

    White-matter hyperintensity (WMH) is frequently seen in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), but the complete physiopathology of WMH remains to be elucidated. In this study, we sought to determine whether there is an association between the maximum brain tissue displacement (maxBTD), as assessed by...
