- PublicationOpen AccessRelationships of DTI findings with neurocognitive dysfunction in children with Type 1 diabetes mellitus(2016-01-01T00:00:00Z) Toprak, Huseyin; Yetis, Huseyin; Alkan, Alpay; Filiz, Mekiya; Kurtcan, Serpil; Aralasmak, Ayse; Aksu, Mehmet S.; Cesur, Yasar; TOPRAK, HÜSEYİN; ALKAN, ALPAY; KURTCAN, SERPİL; ARALAŞMAK, AYŞE; CESUR, YAŞARObjective: To determine whether there were diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) changes in the brain among children with Type 1 diabetes mellitus (DM) and investigate the correlation between the fractional anisotropy (FA) and apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) values and neurocognitive functions.
- PublicationMetadata onlyDiffusion tensor imaging findings of the brainstem in subjects with tonsillar ectopia(2018-03-01) Kurtcan, SERPİL; Alkan, ALPAY; YETIS, Huseyin; TÜZÜN, Umit; Aralasmak, AYŞE; Toprak, HÜSEYİN; Ozdemir, HÜSEYİN; KURTCAN, SERPİL; ALKAN, ALPAY; ARALAŞMAK, AYŞE; TOPRAK, HÜSEYİN; ÖZDEMİR, HÜSEYINWe aimed to evaluate the differences between apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC), fractional anisotropy (FA), axial diffusivity (AD), and radial diffusivity (RD) values obtained from different cranial sites in subjects with Chiari I Malformation (CM-I) and borderline tonsillar ectopia (BTE), and to determine correlations between diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) metrics and the severity of tonsillar ectopia. A total of 73 subjects with CM-I and BTE and 35 control underwent MRI and DTI. In our study, ADC values measured from the level of medulla oblongata and the RD values measured in middle cerebellar peduncles, thalamus, and globus pallidus were higher in CM-I patients than in controls. FA values at the medulla oblongata level and AD values at the medulla oblongata and pons level higher in patients with CM-I. ADC and AD values measured at the pons level were higher in BTE subjects than in controls. Compared with BTE, the CM-I subjects- ADC values at the medulla oblongata and AD values at the pons level were higher. In addition, FAs at the pons and medulla oblongata level were higher. At the medulla oblongata level, a positive correlation was observed between ADC and the size of tonsillar ectopia. AD and FA values measured at the level of medulla oblongata and pons were positively correlated with the size of tonsillar ectopia. These findings may be related to the severity of microstructural changes involving neuronal tracts at the brainstem level due to tonsillar ectopia. DTI may be useful in determining the extent of microstructural changes at the tissue level in subjects with tonsillar ectopia.

Although DSA (digital substraction angiography) is regarded as the gold standard, noninvasive methods of CT, CTA and MRI, MRA are widely used for diagnosis. Aim: Our aim is to illustrate noninvasive imaging findings in CCD. Conclusion: Emphasizing on diagnostic pitfalls, limitations and mimicking diseases.

- PublicationMetadata onlyRelationship between the corpus callosum and neurocognitive disabilities in children with NF-1: diffusion tensor imaging features(2016-11-01) Aydin, SİNEM; Kurtcan, SERPİL; Alkan, ALPAY; GULER, Serhat; FILIZ, Mekiya; YILMAZ, TEMEL FATİH; SAHIN, Turkan Uygur; Aralasmak, AYŞE; AYDIN, SİNEM; KURTCAN, SERPİL; ALKAN, ALPAY; YILMAZ, TEMEL FATİH; ARALAŞMAK, AYŞEPurpose: Mild neurocognitive disabilities are commonly observed in children with neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF-1). Enlargement of the corpus callosum (CC) is one of the findings in NF-1, but the pathogenesis has not yet been clarified. In this study, we investigated whether diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) features of CC differed between children with NF-1 and healthy control subjects, and we tried to evahlate the association between the microstructural integrity of CC and neurocognitive disabilities, based on apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) and fractional anisotropy (FA) values.
