Background And Purpose: While conventional MR imaging has limited value in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, nonconventional MR imaging has shown alterations of microstructure using diffusion MR imaging and recently sodium homeostasis with sodium MR imaging. We aimed to investigate the topography of brain regions showing combined microstructural and sodium homeostasis alterations in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis subgroups according to their disease-progression rates.
Materials And Methods: Twenty-nine patients with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and 24 age-matched healthy controls were recruited. Read More
