OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to create a new template for the anatomical normalization of I-123 FP-CIT SPECT images of Japanese people to evaluate dopamine transporter binding. METHODS The subjects consisted of 16 normal control subjects (5 females and 11 males; mean age ± SD, 51.6 ± 9.5 years, ranging from 25 to 62 years) and 21 parkinsonian(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study is to establish the optimal regions of interest (ROIs) in anatomically normalized I-123 FP-CIT SPECT images for the quantification of dopamine transporter binding. METHODS The subjects comprised 16 normal controls and 14 Parkinsonian patients. All of the normal control subjects underwent I-123 FP-CIT SPECT and MRI. The(More)
PURPOSE We investigated the enhancement of the intracranial arterial walls with gadolinium-enhanced, black-blood three-dimensional T1-weighted imaging (Gd-3DBB) by using an improved motion-sensitized driven-equilibrium (iMSDE)-prepared volumetric isotropic turbo spin-echo acquisition (VISTA). METHODS A total of 115 patients underwent FLAIR, 3D-TOF-MRA and(More)
