The Role of MR Physics in Noninvasive Estimation of Cerebral Ferritn Levels and Microglia Activity in Intracerebral Hemorrhage Patients
M Kasam*, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MNSU-E-E-6 Sunday 3:00PM - 6:00PM Room: Exhibit Hall
To educate the treating clinician about the role of MR Physics in noninvasive estimation of cerebral ferritn levels and microglia activity and the recent updates in intracerebral hemorrhage ICH) patients research.
Methods and Results:
Organization of methods, results and recent updates.
1)In-situ monitoring of the cerebral ferritin levels and microglia activity of ICH patients using MRI.
2)Correlate and establish the literature till date and explore the relationship between the serum ferritin levels and perihematomal ferritin levels at each stage of ICH stroke
Noninvasive monitoring of both ferritin levels and the microglia activity using MRI may help the clinician in selecting a proper iron chelating drug and its dosage to control the secondary injury, thus affecting the mortality and disability in ICH population.
