Imaging in Parkinson’s Disease

Recent advances in imaging technology provide new means of assessing atypical parkinsonian patients and offer both clinicians and researchers more accurate differential diagnoses than history and exam alone. The optimal technique is one that provides high discriminatory power between atypical parkinsonian syndromes (e.g. multiple system atrophy, progressive supranuclear palsy, corticobasal degeneration, diffuse Lewy body disease) in individual patients presenting with early symptoms, ideally without requiring significant technical expertise. Such techniques are invaluable to researchers, and eventually clinicians, as new treatments are developed, tested, and ultimately made available for patients with atypical parkinsonian syndromes.

Keywords:   differential diagnosis, atypical parkinsonian syndromes, multiple system atrophy, progressive supranuclear palsy, corticobasal degeneration, dementia with lewy bodies, differential diagnosis
