Description

Imaging in Movement Disorders: Imaging in Atypical Parkinsonism and Familial Movement Disorders, Volume 142, addresses the use of imaging modalities across the spectrum of movement disorders and dementias. Over the last decades, advances in neuroimaging tools have played a pivotal role in expanding our understanding of disease aetiology and pathophysiology, identifying biomarkers to monitor disease progression, aiding differential diagnosis and in the identification of novel targets for therapeutic intervention. This updated volume covers PET Molecular Imaging in Atypical Parkinsonism, SPECT Molecular Imaging in Atypical Parkinsonism, Structural MRI in Atypical Parkinsonism, Functional MRI in Atypical Parkinsonism, and more.

Key Features

  • Offers a complete review of the applications of neuroimaging tools in Atypical Parkinsonism, familial Parkinson’s disease and Huntington’s disease
  • Discusses the role of neuroimaging modalities, including SPECT, PET, and structural and functional MRI
  • Includes sections on potential clinical applications and future directions

About the Serial Volume Editor

Marios Politis

Professor Marios Politis (MD MSc DIC PhD FRCP FEAN) is a Professor of Neurology, Consultant Neurologist, the Director of Neurodegeneration Imaging Group and the Director of Mireille Gillings Neuroimaging Centre at the University of Exeter. His research involves the use of Positron Emission Tomography (PET) and Single Photon Emission Tomography (SPECT) molecular imaging, structural and functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), CSF and blood molecular markers, digital markers and clinical observation as methods of investigating aetiology, pathophysiology, and effects and complications of novel therapies in Neurodegenerative disorders. Professor Marios Politis has receive a high number of awards for clinical, research, and clinical research excellence including a research achievement award by the MRC (2010), the Movement Disorder Society Award for Outstanding and Innovative Clinical Research (2012), the IMPETus award for innovative and outstanding PET molecular imaging research (2013, 2014, 2015, 2016) and the PET Investigator Award from the Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging (2015). In 2016, he was elected Fellow of the European Academy of Neurology for outstanding contribution in neurodegenerative research. In 2017, he received the Jon Stolk Award in Movement Disorders from the American Academy of Neurology and was elected Fellow of Royal College of Physicians. Professor Marios Politis has significant industry experience by serving as a clinical investigator, consultant and principal investigator in several collaborations with industrial partners and pharma including a number of clinical trials. He has trained over 120 clinical and non-clinical fellows, research associates and research assistants, and undergraduate and postgraduate students at NIG. He has raised a record amount of over £60 million for cutting-edge research in neurodegenerative conditions such as Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease and other neurodegenerative disorders; and is actively collaborating with a high number of philanthropic, government, non-commercial and commercial industrial partners. Professor Marios Politis has published over 150 high impact papers and has been running a specialist Neurology and Movement Disorder clinical service for over 15 years with previous appointments at UCLH, Hammersmith and Charring Cross Hospitals, and King’s College Hospital.
