To determine whether magnetization transfer imaging (MTI) demonstrates abnormalities in the brain structures of patients with multiple system atrophy (MSA), we examined 12 patients with clinically probable MSA and 11 control subjects. We calculated magnetization transfer ratios (MTRs) using region of interest analysis from MTI and assessed abnormal signal changes on T2-weighted images. MTRs of the base of the pons, middle cerebellar peduncle, putamen, and white matter of the precentral gyrus… CONTINUE READING
