OBJECTIVE The overall goal of this study was to evaluate the usability of the susceptibility weighted imaging (SWI) in (1) assessment of iron deposition to enhance our ability to detect PD in the early phase and (2) in estimation of the degree of PD. PATIENTS AND METHODS SWI scans were carried out in 54 patients with PD (18 patients with the Hoehn-Yahr(More)
β-amyloid (Aβ) plaques in the brain are composed of Aβ40 and Aβ42 peptides, and are the defining pathological feature of Alzheimer's disease (AD). Fluorescent probes that can detect Aβ plaques have gained increasing interest as potential tools for in vitro and in vivo monitoring of the progression of AD. In this study, chalcone-mimic fluorescent probe 5 was(More)
