Perfusion MRI Shows CPAP Healing the Brains of Apnea Patients

Continuous Positive Airway Pressure, or CPAP, induces certain changes in the Mean Diffusivity (MD) and Fractional Anisotropy (FA) in the brain, which indicates microstructural changes. Both occur in language, sensory-motor functions, and cognition. CPAP treatment leads to brain perfusion, which increases cerebral blood flow (CBF) as well as cerebral blood volume (CBV). It is an […]
