To determine the diagnostic performance of neuromelanin-sensitive magnetic resonance imaging discriminating between patients with Parkinson’s disease and normal healthy controls and to identify factors causing heterogeneity influencing the diagnostic performance. A systematic literature search in the Ovid-MEDLINE and EMBASE databases was performed for studies reporting the relevant topic before February 17, 2020. The pooled sensitivity and specificity values with their 95% confidence intervals… Expand

The diagnostic value of SNpc using NM-MRI in Parkinson’s disease: meta-analysis
SNpc signal detected by NM-MRI exhibited high sensitivity and specificity for diagnosis of PD, which was a high-performance imaging diagnostic method for PD and should be widely used in Parkinson’s diagnosis. Expand
Quantitative Analysis Versus Visual Assessment of Neuromelanin MR Imaging for the Diagnosis of Parkinson's disease.
Visual inspection of neuromelanin-sensitive MR images by experienced neuroradiologists provides comparable results to quantitative width measurement in the detection of early stage PD SN changes and may become a useful tool in clinical practice. Expand
Combined Visualization of Nigrosome-1 and Neuromelanin in the Substantia Nigra Using 3T MRI for the Differential Diagnosis of Essential Tremor and de novo Parkinson's Disease
The findings demonstrate that visual analyses combing NM and N1 imaging in theSN may aid in differential diagnosis of PD and ET and suggest that patients with PD exhibit larger iron deposits in the SN than those with ET. Expand
Neuromelanin-sensitive magnetic resonance imaging: a promising technique for depicting tissue characteristics containing neuromelanin
Recently developed ultra-high-field magnetic resonance imaging systems produce T1-weighted neuromelanin-sensitive images with very high spatial resolution, enabling the depiction of tissue containing neuromalanin in patients with IPD. Expand
Neuromelanin-sensitive MRI of the substantia nigra: An imaging biomarker to differentiate essential tremor from tremor-dominant Parkinson's disease.
Both the measurements and visual analysis of SNc on NM-MRI provide high diagnostic accuracy for differentiating ET from PDT subtype, andNM-MRI is a potential tool in diagnostic work-up of tremor disorders. Expand
Quantifying changes in nigrosomes using quantitative susceptibility mapping and neuromelanin imaging for the diagnosis of early-stage Parkinson's disease.
Comprehensive MRI assessment of the abnormality involving the nigrosomes can yield a high diagnostic performance for early-stage PD. Expand
Differentiation of early-stage parkinsonisms using neuromelanin-sensitive magnetic resonance imaging.
Neuromelanin-sensitive MRI can depict differences in signal intensity of the lateral SNc and the LC among the parkinsonism disorders at their early stages. Expand
Evaluation of Parkinson’s disease by neuromelanin-sensitive magnetic resonance imaging and 123I-FP-CIT SPECT
It is concluded that DaTSCAN is more suitable for the evaluation of the clinical motor severity and would be more useful for the management of PD patients than NmMRI. Expand
3D neuromelanin-sensitive magnetic resonance imaging with semi-automated volume measurement of the substantia nigra pars compacta for diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease
The 3D turbo field echo sequence can distinguish the PD group from the control group with high sensitivity and specificity, especially for early stage of PD. Expand
Comparative Study of MRI Biomarkers in the Substantia Nigra to Discriminate Idiopathic Parkinson Disease
The combination of neuromelanin signal and volume changes with fractional anisotropy measurements in the substantia nigra showed excellent diagnostic accuracy and indicates that these techniques are promising for clinical practice. Expand
