On December 17, 2013 the NIH released 6 new funding opportunities in support of the Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies (BRAIN) initiative, the widely publicized Presidential focus on revolutionizing our understanding of the brain. Among these announcements, one request for proposals stands out as an important opportunity for the neuroradiology community to participate in these efforts. According to RFA-MH-14-217, a total of $4 million – 10% of the total NIH BRAIN funding pool – has been allocated for advanced human brain imaging projects. As discussed by NIBIB Director Dr. Roderic Pettigrew on a recent informational conference call … Continue reading >>

Endovascular Treatment of Distal Anterior Cerebral Artery Aneurysms: Single-Center Experience and a Systematic Review
Fellows’ Journal Club
(2 of 3)
Results from a single center treating 20 patients with distal anterior cerebral artery aneurysms were analyzed and compared with those reported in a meta-analysis of 16 studies in the literature that included a total of 279 similar patients. These aneurysms may be treated with a high rate of success but complication rates are higher than those for aneurysms of the circle of Willis.
In this study, a single center’s experience of 20 patients and a systematic review and a meta-analysis of 16 studies, including 279 patients/aneurysms, assessed the safety and efficacy … Continue reading >>

This study assesses the risk of being female in addition to the well-known factors of age and apolipoprotein E ε4 status in the development and progression of Alzheimer disease based on longitudinal brain atrophy, cognitive decline, and CSF markers. APOE ε4 accelerated rates of decline, especially in women. The gender effect was at least as important as APOE ε4 status and showed weaker relationships to CSF markers.
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE
Age and the apolipoprotein E ε4 allele are well-known risk factors for Alzheimer disease, but whether female sex is also a risk … Continue reading >>

However, in their discussion, in relationship to spinal cord AVM with Parkes Weber syndrome, they comment briefly that “Spinal AVM has not been reported to be a … Continue reading >>
