Subcortical U-fibers involvement in white matter disorders: bridging theory and practice
Anatomy, CNS, Neuroradiology brain, MR, Education, Education and training
- A key diagnostic element is correctly identifying subcortical U-fibers involvement, which on MR imaging manifests as a juxtacortical (directly in contact with the cortex) white matter lesion.
- Subcortical U-fibers involvement helps narrow down an otherwise extensive list of differential diagnoses for white matter lesions. However, correlation with associated patterns of white/gray matter involvement, as well as the clinical and biological status of the patient, is often necessary for reaching a conclusion.
