BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Quantitative susceptibility mapping allows overcoming several nonlocal restrictions of susceptibility-weighted and phase imaging and enables quantification of magnetic susceptibility. We compared the diagnostic accuracy of quantitative susceptibility mapping and R2* (1/T2*) mapping to discriminate between patients with Parkinson disease and controls. MATERIALS AND METHODS For 21 patients with Parkinson disease and 21 age- and sex-matched controls, 2 radiologists… CONTINUE READING
