Imaging in Movement Disorders: Imaging in Other Movement Disorders and Dementia, Volume 143 provides an up-to-date textbook on the use of imaging modalities across the spectrum of movement disorders and dementias. The book brings together lessons learned from neuroimaging tools in the content of movement disorders, including idiopathic and sporadic forms of Parkinson's disease, Huntington's disease, Atypical Parkinsonism, Dystonia, Essential Tremor, and more. Specific chapters cover Neuroimaging Applications in Dystonia, Neuroimaging Applications in Essential Tremor, Neuroimaging applications in Restless Leg Syndrome, Neuroimaging Application in Tourette's Syndrome and TIC Disorders, Neuroimaging Applications in Functional Movement Disorders, and Neuroimaging Applications in Cerebellar Disorders.

Addition sections cover Molecular Imaging of Parkinson's Disease Cognitive Impairment, Structural MRI in Parkinson's Disease Cognitive Impairment, Functional MRI in Parkinson's Disease Cognitive Impairment, Molecular Imaging of Dementia with Lewy Bodies, Structural and Functional MRI of Dementia with Lewy Bodies, Transcranial Sonography in Movement Disorders, Imaging transplantation in Movement Disorders, Hybrid PET-MRI Applications in Movement Disorders, amongst other topics.

Marios Politis Professor of Neurology, Consultant Neurologist, the Director of Neurodegeneration Imaging Group and the Director of Mireille Gillings Neuroimaging Centre at the University of Exeter, London, United Kingdom.. Professor Marios Politis (MD MSc DIC PhD FRCP FEAN) is a Professor of Neurology, Consultant Neurologist, the Director of Neurodegeneration Imaging Group and the Director of Mireille Gillings Neuroimaging Centre at the University of Exeter. His research involves the use of Positron Emission Tomography (PET) and Single Photon Emission Tomography (SPECT) molecular imaging, structural and functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), CSF and blood molecular markers, digital markers and clinical observation as methods of investigating aetiology, pathophysiology, and effects and complications of novel therapies in Neurodegenerative disorders. Professor Marios Politis has receive a high number of awards for clinical, research, and clinical research excellence including a research achievement award by the MRC (2010), the Movement Disorder Society Award for Outstanding and Innovative Clinical Research (2012), the IMPETus award for innovative and outstanding PET molecular imaging research (2013, 2014, 2015, 2016) and the PET Investigator Award from the Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging (2015). In 2016, he was elected Fellow of the European Academy of Neurology for outstanding contribution in neurodegenerative research. In 2017, he received the Jon Stolk Award in Movement Disorders from the American Academy of Neurology and was elected Fellow of Royal College of Physicians. Professor Marios Politis has significant industry experience by serving as a clinical investigator, consultant and principal investigator in several collaborations with industrial partners and pharma including a number of clinical trials. He has trained over 120 clinical and non-clinical fellows, research associates and research assistants, and undergraduate and postgraduate students at NIG. He has raised a record amount of over £60 million for cutting-edge research in neurodegenerative conditions such as Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease and other neurodegenerative disorders; and is actively collaborating with a high number of philanthropic, government, non-commercial and commercial industrial partners. Professor Marios Politis has published over 150 high impact papers and has been running a specialist Neurology and Movement Disorder clinical service for over 15 years with previous appointments at UCLH, Hammersmith and Charring Cross Hospitals, and King's College Hospital.
