MRI Bio-Marker Study

Data Collection: 2019 – 2024

Currently, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans used in standard medical practice often offer only limited information for the diagnosis of different forms of degenerative brain diseases. The overall aim of this study is to improve the ability of MRI to make disease-specific diagnoses of the major neurodegenerative disease patients (eg., Alzheimer’s Disease, frontotemporal dementias, Parkinson’s Disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and related disorders) using advanced MRI methods. In addition to improved diagnosis, it is hoped that these new MRI methods may also offer new insights into how these diseases affect the brain and, therefore, potentially identify new targets for treatment.
