The Role of Neuroimaging in the Diagnosis of Parkinson ’ s Disease

  title={The Role of Neuroimaging in the Diagnosis of Parkinson ’ s Disease},
  author={Linyuan Zhang and Jun Liu},
Parkinson’s disease (PD), the second most common neurodegenerative disease, is characterized by the progressive loss of dopaminergic neurons in the substantia nigra pars compacta (SNpc) and the formation of intracytoplasmic Lewy inclusion bodies. To date, the diagnosis of idiopathic PD is mainly based on its cardinal clinical features: resting tremor, bradykinesia and rigidity. In recent years, advances in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), transcranial sonography… CONTINUE READING
