Cardiac arrests due to substance use leads to greater rates of severe cerebral edema

Cardiac arrests due to substance use leads to greater rates of severe cerebral edema

March 16, 2022

We investigated the effects substance-related cardiac arrests (SRCA) in patients who failed to regain consciousness after resuscitation on severe cerebral edema development, a neuroimaging intermediate endpoint for neurologic injury. Patients for whose cardiac arrests could be attributed to substance-use were more likely to develop severe cerebral edema compared to patients whose cardiac arrests were not due to subtance-use. SRCA patients had higher proportion of brain deaths compared to non-SRCA patients. However, there were no statistically significant differences in...

Consensus Efforts in the DSC/DCE Field Towards Becoming Quantitative Imaging Biomarkers

March 5, 2022
We will be presenting consensus efforts in the dynamic susceptibility contrast (DSC) and dynamic contrast enhanced (DCE) MRI perfusion imaging community with regards to data acquisition, analysis, and interpretation at this year's ISMRM 2022 Workshop on Perfusion Imaging. We will be discussing how these efforts can lead towards DSC- and DCE- derived parametric maps can be used as quantitative imaging biomarkers.
