Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Neuro-Psychological Testing In Cystic Fibrosis
Cystic Fibrosis / Posted 6 months ago
Patients with CF have several potential risk factors which may predispose them to memory problems. Because the CF population has historically only been young, this is not something that has been focused on. No research has currently identified whether patients with CF have a much earlier risk of developing cognitive impairment or how CF impacts on the brain.
There has not previously been work in this area of CF and the investigators are in a unique position with the Cardiff University Brain Research Imaging Centre (CUBRIC) and its expertise to be able to perform Magnetic Resonance Imagining (MRI) scans and neurocognitive testing on patients with CF for the first time.
