BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Various magnetic resonance (MR) measurements have been proposed to aid in differentiating between progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP) and idiopathic Parkinson's disease (IPD); however, these methods have not been compared directly. The aim of this study was to determine which measurement method exhibits the highest power to differentiate between PSP and IPD. METHODS Brain MR images from 82 IPD and 29 PSP patients were analyzed retrospectively. T1-weighted 3D volumetric… CONTINUE READING
