Assess the feasibility of proton MR spectroscopic imaging (1H-MRSI) of the striatum (putamen and caudate nucleus) in patients with Parkinson's disease and evaluate striatal neuronal density. Proton MRSI of the striatum and thalamus with 2 cc spatial resolution was performed in 10 patients with Parkinson's disease, 1 patient with atypical parkinsonism, and 13 control subjects. Single voxel proton MR spectra with signals from choline metabolites (Cho), creatine metabolites (Cr), and the putative… CONTINUE READING
