Abstract

To investigate the spatiotemporal evolution of venous narrowing in newly developing MS lesions in a longitudinal MRI study including susceptibility-weighted images (SWIs). We retrospectively investigated serial MR examinations of 18 patients with MS acquired on a 3T MRI system including SWI for acute contrast-enhancing lesions with at least 1 MRI examination before contrast enhancement. The mean diameter of veins at the time point of contrast enhancement was compared with the mean diameter of veins before and after contrast enhancement. A total of 40 acute contrast-enhancing lesions with a corresponding intralesional central vein were included in the study. The mean diameter of intralesional veins at the time of contrast enhancement (0.80 ± 0.12 mm) was smaller than that at before (1.16 ± 0.19 mm) and after contrast enhancement (1.07 ± 0.15 mm; p < 0.001 for all comparisons). Our findings contribute to the increasing database of plaque development and evolution. The smaller diameter of intralesional veins on SWI at the time of blood-brain barrier breakdown may reflect morphologic changes because of perivascular inflammation and/or decreased levels of deoxygenated hemoglobin.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 3. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 20 April 2018.
All research outputs
#3,761,846
of 12,829,119 outputs
Outputs from Neurology: Neuroimmunology and Neuroinflammation
#375
of 483 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#120,885
of 344,490 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Neurology: Neuroimmunology and Neuroinflammation
#29
of 30 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,829,119 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 49th percentile – i.e., 49% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 483 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 10.4. This one is in the 21st percentile – i.e., 21% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 344,490 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 63% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 30 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 3rd percentile – i.e., 3% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
