Assessing the Value of Brain MRI in Migraine With Normal Neurologic Exam

Assessing the Value of Brain MRI in Migraine With Normal Neurologic Exam

Routine brain magnetic resonance imaging is not necessary for those with migraine who have normal neurologic function unless there is a clear clinical indication that there are underlying structural abnormalities.

Growing Number of Genetic, Neuroimaging Markers for Migraine With Advances in Research

By

Advancements in research have led to the identification of a growing number of genetic and neuroimaging markers of migraine.

Episodic Migraine-Related White Matter Hyperintensities Ipsilateral to Pain

Episodic Migraine-Related White Matter Hyperintensities Ipsilateral to Pain

By

Pain experienced by patients during episodic migraine is associated with the occurrence of white matter hyperintensities in the cerebral hemisphere ipsilateral to the pain side.

Cerebrospinal Fluid Sodium Concentration May Be Elevated in Patients With Migraine

By

Patients who experience migraines may have higher cerebral sodium concentrations than nonmigraineurs.

Incidental Findings on Brain MRI for Pediatric Headache

Incidental Findings on Brain MRI for Pediatric Headache

By

Although a range of incidental findings may be observed on MRI obtained in pediatric headache, they are rarely indicative of a serious underlying condition.

Disease Activity on Foot MRI Despite Clinical Remission in Rheumatoid Arthritis

Disease Activity on Foot MRI Despite Clinical Remission in Rheumatoid Arthritis

By

A sizeable percentage of patients with rheumatoid arthritis who are in clinical remission have evidence of disease activity on magnetic resonance imaging of the foot that is mostly affected.

Diagnostic Value of MRI for Unclassified Arthritis

Diagnostic Value of MRI for Unclassified Arthritis

MRI may assist in identifying patients with unclassified arthritis who will develop rheumatoid arthritis (RA) — primarily in patients with UA presenting with oligoarthritis.

Repeat MRI May Not Benefit Patients With Chronic Spine Pain

Repeat MRI May Not Benefit Patients With Chronic Spine Pain

By

Repeated magnetic resonance imaging for chronic spine pain does not impact occurrence of surgical treatment or interval changes.

Head Computed Tomography Safe in Pregnant Women Presenting With Headache in the Emergency Department

Head Computed Tomography Safe in Pregnant Women Presenting With Headache in the Emergency Department

By

MRI is ordered more often than CT for pregnant patients with headache, despite no significant difference in radiation risk.

Clinical Improvement not Always Indicative of Rheumatoid Arthritis Disease Progression

Clinical Improvement not Always Indicative of Rheumatoid Arthritis Disease Progression

By

For every 5 patients with RAs displaying improved disease activity scores or remission by clinical criteria, 2 will exhibit disease progression on MRI.
