By using three-dimensional magnetic resonance imaging-based volumetry, we studied atrophy of the caudate nucleus, putamen, brainstem, and cerebellum in patients with idiopathic Parkinson's syndrome (IPS, n = 11), progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP, n = 6), and multiple system atrophy with predominant parkinsonism (MSA-P, n = 12) or ataxia (MSA-C, n = 17). Patients were compared with a total of 46 controls, of whom 16 were age matched. Mean striatal, cerebellar, and brainstem volumes were… CONTINUE READING
