Human Connectome Project style diffusion available at NeuRA Imaging

The Human Connectome Project (HCP) was a collaborative study to map connections in a healthy, human brain. The protocols used for data acquisition have recently been configured and optimised for researchers to use on the Philips Ingenia CX 3T MRI scanner at NeuRA Imaging. The NeuRA Imaging HCP style protocol corresponding to the Young Adult …

A glimpse into brainstem functional oscillations across individual migraine cycles

Recently published in NeuroImage: Clinical is a paper from the PhD thesis of Noemi Meylakh, using the Philips 3T TX MRI scanner, to measure resting functional oscillations in controls and episodic migraineurs across the span of 30 days (doi: 10.1016/j.nicl.2021.102630). Since the 17th Century, philosophers have struggled with understanding the pathophysiology of the ever-elusive migraine …

Neuroimaging to examine high rates of dementia in older Aboriginal Australians

A study at NeuRA Imaging is engaging the Australian Aboriginal community to investigate structural and pathological brain changes that underlie high rates of dementia and cognitive decline in older Aboriginal Australians. Dementia rates in Aboriginal Australians are 3-5 times higher than in the broader Australian population and are among the highest rates reported globally. Existing …

Series of consensus reference papers for MR spectroscopy

Working groups from the MRS study group of the ISMRM have been working on a series of consensus papers covering aspects of magnetic resonance spectroscopy, which, together, make a valuable reference library for anyone contemplating planning, acquiring, analyzing and publishing studies that use MRS. In 2019 a manuscript that covered recommended methods for acquiring clinical …
