IHRF, OHSU Establish First Neuro-Imaging Library
May 21,2007—The Intracranial Hypertension Research Foundation (IHRF) is excited to announce the creation of the IHRF-OHSU Neuro-Radiology Imaging Library for chronic IH, which is a partnership between the Foundation and the radiology department at Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) in Portland, Oregon. The Imaging Library will be run as a project of the IH Registry.
For the first time, researchers from around the world will have the opportunity to study MRIs, CT scans, MRVs, MRAs and other imaging studies of chronic IH patients’ brains and skulls for changes related to intracranial hypertension.
Questions concerning important topics like the physical progression of chronic IH, the development of an empty sella or a Chiari malformation and whether imaging can accurately indicate intracranial pressure non-invasively can be examined and may ultimately be answered by studying the Imaging Library collection.
