Imaging in Neurodegenerative Disorders covers all the imaging techniques associated with investigations and diagnoses in neurology for neurodegenerative disorders, as well as new exciting methods like new tracers, biomarker, gene-array profiling, and the potential for applying such techniques clinically. As new imaging modalities have recently emerged as outstanding non-invasive techniques for the study of the neurodegenerative disorders, this online resource discusses high resolution, morphological, metabolic and functional analysis, as well as computed tomography, magnetic resonance, nuclear medicine and molecular imaging. It also offers present and future applications for these modalities as applied to neurodegenerative disorders, as well as the synergy between the fields of radiology, neurology and neuroradiology, allowing the reader to have a complete vision of the pathology and its diagnosis.
