Conventional MR imaging of Parkinson disease (PD) is frequently normal or nonspecific. However, advanced MR techniques, such as diffusion tensor imaging (DTI), diffusion kurtosis imaging (DKI), and arterial spin labeling (ASL) allow us to evaluate changes related to the pathophysiology of PD.1-3 The purpose of this exhibit is to review the conventional and advanced MR imaging of PD and to present some new data from ASL and DKI studies of PD.
