Gliomas are amongst the most common primary brain tumours in adults and are often associated with poor prognosis. Understanding the extent of white matter (WM) which is affected outside the tumoral lesion may be of paramount importance to explain cognitive deficits and the clinical progression of the disease. To this end, we explored both direct (i...
Article
Full-text available
Diffusion-based biophysical models have been used in several recent works to study the microenvironment of brain tumours. While the pathophysiological interpretation of the parameters of these models remains unclear, their use as signal representations may yield useful biomarkers for monitoring the treatment and the progression of this complex and...

Background. Neurodegeneration is a major contributor of neurological disability in multiple sclerosis (MS). The possibility to fully characterize normal appearing white matter (NAWM) damage could provide the missing information needed to clarify the mechanism beyond disability progression. Objective. In the present study we aimed to characterize t...
