How to trace stem cells for MRI evaluation?
Dousset V, Tourdias T, Brochet B, Boiziau C, Petry KG

Applications of imaging techniques to visualize stem cells for monitoring, control and treatment of biological systems, in particular the brain, is at the forefront of investigations. These approaches involve the identification of stem and precursor cells that may be of various origins, but are related to specific clinical conditions, and the choice of the appropriate markers to achieve the required imaging while minimizing the side effects. This article will review examples of the contrast agent design for rational approaches in stem cell imaging. Potential pitfalls or side effects associated with contrast agents, in particular iron oxide nanoparticles, for cell labelling are also discussed.

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: In the concept of ischemic penumbra, the volume of salvaged penumbra is considered as the volume of FLAIR normalization on follow-up MRI compared with early diffusion and perfusion abnormalities. Using magnetization transfer imaging, very sensitive to macromolecular disruption, we investigated whether FLAIR normalization was a good marker for tissue full recovery. METHODS: We prospectively included 30 patients with acute middle cerebral artery stroke. Diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) and perfusion-weighted imaging were performed within 12 hours after onset (MRI.1), and the final infarct was documented by MRI with FLAIR and magnetization transfer at 1-month follow-up (MRI.2). We compared magnetic transfer ratio of a normal region with values measured at 1 month (MRI.2) in 4 regions of interest: (1) the initial DWI hypersignal (CORE=DWI MRI.1); (2) the infarct growth area (infarct growth=FLAIR MRI.2-DWI MRI.1); (3) the hypoperfused area that normalized (reversible perfusion abnormalities=perfusion-weighted imaging MRI.1-FLAIR_ MRI.2); and (4) the early DWI abnormalities that normalized (reversible diffusion abnormalities=DWI MRI.1- FLAIR_MRI.2). RESULTS: In comparison with values obtained in normal tissue (magnetic transfer ratio=49.8%, SD=1.9), magnetic transfer ratio at 1 month was significantly decreased in reversible perfusion abnormalities (45.2%, SD=2.5; P<0.0001) and reversible diffusion abnormalities (43.2%, SD=2.8; P=0.0156). It was also markedly reduced, as expected, in the CORE (40.9%, SD=5.2) and infarct growth regions (43.1%, SD=2.0). CONCLUSIONS: Magnetic transfer ratio assessed presence of microstructural damages in the MRI-defined salvaged penumbra. This may imply cellular loss and partial infarction. Evaluation of the efficacy of therapies that promote reperfusion or neuroprotection may benefit from this additional information.

[Diffusion tensor imaging and tractography of the brain and spinal cord].
Oppenheim C , Ducreux D , Rodrigo S , Hodel J , Tourdias T , Charbonneau F , Pierrefitte S , Meder J

Diffusion tensor imaging is a magnetic resonance imaging technique that provides details on tissue microstructure and organization well beyond the usual image resolution. With diffusion tensor imaging, diffusion anisotropy can be quantified and subtle white matter changes not normally seen on conventional MRI can be detected. The aim of this article is to review the principles of diffusion tensor imaging and fiber tracking and their applications to the study of the brain, including Alzheimer disease, neuropsychiatric disorders, strokes, multiple sclerosis, brain tumors, and intractable seizures. Emerging applications to spinal cord disorders are also presented.
