This contribution demonstrates that a short (402) 3D multi-echo GRE sequence at 7.0T targeting the midbrain allows a precise characterization of Substantia Nigra and the visualization of its inner organization in healthy subjects and in patients with Parkinsons disease. This imaging sequence permits the diagnosis of Parkinsons disease with remarkable accuracy.
