Multiple sclerosis

View this topic in
Multiple sclerosis (abbreviated MS, also known as disseminated sclerosis or encephalomyelitis disseminata) is an inflammatory disease in which the fatty myelin sheaths around the axons of the brain and spinal cord are damaged, leading to demyelination and scarring as well as a broad spectrum of signs and symptoms.

  • A paradigm shift for rehabilitation robotics

    Therapeutic robots enhance clinician productivity in facilitating patient recovery. In this article, we presented an overview of the remarkable growth in the activities in the area of therapeutic robotics and of experiences with our devices. We briefly review the published clinical literature in this emerging field and our initial clinical results in stroke. However, we also report our initial efforts that go beyond stroke, broadening the potential population that might benefit from this class of technology by discussing case studies of applications to other neurological diseases. We will also highlight the underexploited potential of this technology as an evaluation tool.

  • A flexible machine learning image analysis system for high-precision computer-assisted segmentation of multispectral MRI data sets in patients with multiple sclerosis

    Automatic brain segmentation is an issue of specific clinical relevance in both diagnosis and therapy control of patients with demyelinating diseases such as multiple sclerosis (MS). We present a complete system for high- precision computer-assisted image analysis of multispectral MRI data based on a flexible machine learning approach. Careful quality evaluation shows that the system outperforms conventional threshold-based techniques w.r.t. inter- observer agreement levels for the quantification of relevant clinical parameters, such as white matter lesion load and brain parenchyma volume

  • Proton magnetic resonance spectroscopic imaging of abnormal gray matter in multiple sclerosis

    Proton magnetic resonance spectroscopic imaging (MRSI) of the brain was performed on 53 patients with clinically definite relapsing remitting multiple sclerosis (MS). The contributions of white matter (WM), gray matter (GM), and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) to the spectroscopic voxels were determined using either double inversion recovery magnetic resonance imaging or segmentation of affirmative images. In 13 patients additional peaks in the 0.8 to 1.5 ppm spectral region, that reflect the demyelinating products, were observed mainly confined to GM. These studies demonstrate that some of the GM that appears normal on magnetic resonance images is biochemically abnormal.

  • Automatic MRI brain tissue segmentation using a hybrid statistical and geometric model

    This paper presents a novel hybrid segmentation technique incorporating a statistical as well as a geometric model in a unified segmentation scheme for brain tissue segmentation of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans. We combine both voxel probability and image gradient and curvature information for segmenting gray matter (GM) and white matter (WM) tissues. Both qualitative and quantitative results on synthetic and real brain MRI scans indicate superior and consistent performance when compared with standard techniques such as SPM and FAST

  • The average cerebral perfusion in patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) using MRI

    Flow and structural related studies of the vasculature of the head and neck have indicated that venous outflow may be obstructed in MS patients, with postulation that this leads to the development or exacerbation of the disease. The current work presented in the following is to determine if there is correlation between abnormal internal jugular vein (IJV) flow and average cerebral blood flow in MS patients. 140 MS patients, 117 of known MS type, and 26 healthy controls were imaged by 3-T MRI. 3D contrast-enhanced MR angiography was assessed for structural abnormalities of the IJV, and the MS group was subdivided into two groups; those with stenosis and those without. Velocity encoded phase contrast MR data was processed to quantify flow through major arteries and veins of the neck. The average cerebral blood flow (CBF) was calculated by normalizing the total arterial blood flow to the brain, taken by adding the flow of the internal carotid arteries and vertebral arteries at the C2 vertebral level, by the total brain volume quantified from 3D FLAIR data. The average CBF as a function of total IJV flow at the C6 vertebral level was presented. The MS patients without stenosis show a linear trend in average CBF vs total IJV flow, indicating a potential relationship between arterial flow to the brain and effective drainage in the supine position through the IJV. Future research may indicate potential flow related biomarkers which further separate healthy controls and MS patients.

  • Reciprocal inhibition of soleus H-reflex by using implanted electrodes for both conditioning and test stimulation

    A new recording system was established for the detection of 1a reciprocal inhibition of soleus H-reflex by using the percutaneously implanted electrodes for conditioning and test stimulation those applied to deep peroneal nerve and tibial nerve respectively. This system has its advantage in stable and reliable H-reflex recording even under such conditions as during stimulating other nerves, loading mechanical force and motion in lower extremity. By using this system, the increase of the 1a reciprocal inhibition was detected immediately after TES for common peroneal nerve in hemiplegic patients.

  • A method to compare processing speed and oculomotor function using a modified SDMT.

    While a body of literature relating cognition and oculomotor performance exists, a better understanding of these processes would help facilitate the development of effective treatments for patients suffering various neurological disorders, such as Multiple Sclerosis (MS), Huntington's Disease, or a traumatic brain injury. To examine the relationship between the two, we sought to measure cognition and oculomotor functioning simultaneously, through a modification of a commonly used neuropsychological test, the Symbol Digit Modalities Test (SDMT). Measurement includes monitoring of eye movements in two dimensions with the aid of infrared tracking. This paper presents preliminary data and an overview of analytical methods to be performed in the future on patients with neurological disorders. Correlations between eye movements and the mSDMT were verified using signal characterization. Furthermore, saccadic velocity was shown to remain relatively constant in healthy controls.

  • M3S system prototype - a comprehensive system with straightforward implementation

    There is a growing demand for powered wheelchairs to provide mobility for people with upper-limb impairments, i.e., individuals suffering from cerebral palsy, paraplegia, or multiple sclerosis, and others who may depend on a human-friendly wheelchair to conduct their daily activities. The design of the multiple master multiple slave ("M3S") architecture provides a flexible system in which individual devices can be added or removed to accommodate specific needs. The M3S provides a two-level safety system for each device. The two levels are a central safety monitor and the two independent wired-OR safety lines connected to each device on the bus, and the system is configured such that in the event of failure, system shutdown can be independently enabled at each separate safety level. We have implemented a prototype with DSP cores and additional circuitries that provide safety enhancements to the M3S protocol, and configured the input subsystems and output prime mover to fit into this novel system.
