Core Tip Patients with minimal hepatic encephalopathy (MHE) show neurological impairment in specific tasks to which selective regional alterations in blood flow (BF) could contribute. Arterial spin labeling (ASL), a non-invasive magnetic resonance technique, quantitatively measures cerebral perfusion. We analyzed BF by ASL in different brain areas of controls and cirrhotic patients without and with MHE. We found that BF is more affected in cerebellum than in other areas of cirrhotic patients and that BF determination in cerebellum using ASL may detect MHE earlier than the Psychometric Hepatic Encephalopathy Score battery. Altered nitric oxide-cGMP pathway seems to be associated to altered BF in cerebellum.
