Imaging in Movement Disorders: Imaging in Atypical Parkinsonism and Familial Movement Disorders, Volume 142, addresses the use of imaging modalities across the spectrum of movement disorders and dementias. Over the last decades, advances in neuroimaging tools have played a pivotal role in expanding our understanding of disease aetiology and pathophysiology, identifying biomarkers to monitor disease progression, aiding differential diagnosis and in the identification of novel targets for therapeutic intervention. This updated volume covers PET Molecular Imaging in Atypical Parkinsonism, SPECT Molecular Imaging in Atypical Parkinsonism, Structural MRI in Atypical Parkinsonism, Functional MRI in Atypical Parkinsonism, and more.
- Offers a complete review of the applications of neuroimaging tools in Atypical Parkinsonism, familial Parkinson's disease and Huntington's disease
- Discusses the role of neuroimaging modalities, including SPECT, PET, and structural and functional MRI
- Includes sections on potential clinical applications and future directions
