Imaging has been used extensively to study the effect of HIV infection on the brain. However, because histological samples cannot typically be obtained and correlated with imaging results, human imaging results can be difficult to interpret. In contrast, imaging studies of animals can be performed in a controlled fashion, and the image results can be compared directly to histological findings. These points are important for the study of the neurological consequences of HIV infection. This chapter discusses the use of imaging modalities in the study of animal models for HIV infection.
