These findings--such as lenticulostriate
vasculopathy, choroid plexus cysts, subependymal cysts, and calcifications--do not usually indicate any problems, but they appeared in a quarter of this population, considerably more than the approximately 5% typically seen in the general population, Dr.
Visualization of lenticulostriate
arteries during insular low-grade glioma surgeries by navigated 3D ultrasound power Doppler: technical note.
branches supply the basal ganglia and internal capsule.

artery territory," American Journal of Neuroradiology, vol.
ACAs were patent but diffusely decreased in caliber, and prominent lenticulostriate
vessels were noted in the basal ganglia bilaterally [Figures 3 and 4].

arteries from high-resolution 7 Tesla MRA images," IEEE Transactions on Image Processing, vol.
Briefly, the MCA was electro-cauterized at approximately the level of the rhinal Assure and was occluded immediately distal to the lenticulostriate
branches such that the resulting infarction would be confined to the neocortex.
Otherwise, TS-TI approach can easily detect and control lenticulostriate
arteries, most common offending vessels, while comparing with the transcortical approach.
The findings in the brain included focal minimal parasagittal and parietal pachygyria, glioneuronal heterotopias, neuronal migrational abnormalities, hypomyelination of central white matter, and mineralizing lenticulostriate
vasculopathy with focal gliosis in basal ganglia and thalamus.
In preterm babies due to the involvement of several MCA lenticulostriate
branches, serial HUS might be more sensitive than early MRI for identification of a type of stroke that is common in this age group.
Thereafter, we comment on past and current relevant studies and finally propose the lenticulostriate
artery-neural complex (LNC) as a new research paradigm.
