Magnetic Resonance Imaging of Neuroinflammation in Chronic Pain: A Role for Astrogliosis?

Non-invasive measures of neuroinflammatory processes in humans could substantially aid diagnosis and therapeutic development for many disorders, including chronic pain. Several proton Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy (H-MRS) metabolites have been linked with glial activity (i.e. choline and myo-inositol) and found to be altered in chronic pain patients, but their role in the neuroinflammatory cascade is not well known. Read the abstract.
