High field intensity MRI may demonstrate signal abnormalities consistent with deposits of iron or other paramagnetic substances in several extrapyramidal disorders. Hallervorden-Spatz disease was the only disorder widely known to have iron deposits in the pallidum, that are now easily demonstrated in vivo by MRI. However, lower field intensity MRI may also demonstrate characteristic findings. In progressive supranuclear palsy, definite atrophy of the midbrain and of the region around the third… CONTINUE READING
