To evaluate by MRI the area size and the degree of iron accumulation in basal ganglia nuclei that are implicated in the pathogenesis of Parkinson's disease (PD). 40 patients with idiopathic PD and 40 controls were examined on a 1. 5 Tesla MR imager, using a multiecho SE sequence 2000/20, 40, 60, 80, 100, 120, 140, 160 (TR/TE). The T2 relaxation time (T2) and the area of substantia nigra zona compacta (SNc), substantia nigra zona reticulata (SNr), putamen (Pu), globus pallidus external (GPe… CONTINUE READING
