Quantitative Assessment of Occipital Metabolic and Energetic Changes in Parkinson’s Patients, Using In Vivo (31)P MRS-Based Metabolic Imaging at 7T

Quantitative Assessment of Occipital Metabolic and Energetic Changes in Parkinson’s Patients, Using In Vivo (31)P MRS-Based Metabolic Imaging at 7T
Metabolites. 2021 Mar 1;11(3):145. doi: 10.3390/metabo11030145.ABSTRACTAbnormal energy metabolism associated with mitochondrial dysfunction is thought to be a major contributor to the progression of neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson's disease (PD). Recent advancements in the field of magnetic resonance (MR) based metabolic imaging provide state-of-the-art technologies for non-invasively probing cerebral energy metabolism under various brain conditions. In this proof-of-principle clinical study, ... read more
