TSPO imaging in parkinsonian disorders

Article English OPEN
Gerhard, Alexander;

Microglial activation is a key aspect of the neuroinflammatory process in neurodegenerative disorders including idiopathic and atypical parkinsonian disorders. With positron emission tomography (PET) it has become possible to image this phenomenon in vivo and over the l... View more
