Soon after the advent of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) as a diagnostic modality in the 1980s, it was recognized that some of the contrast found in brain imaging correlated with patterns of iron deposition. The presence of non-heme iron had previously been established by pathological studies on post-mortem brains. The iron concentration is highest in specific nuclei of the basal ganglia and some associated structures. It is low at birth and increases with age until a relatively constant level… CONTINUE READING
