About this book

New imaging sensors, molecular probes, and neuromarkers for faster temporal resolution, smaller spatial resolution, and higher anatomic accuracy have made brain neuroimaging highly valuable in studying neuropathologies. Provocative insights into how the human brain actually works in real time and in vivo are now possible. In Bioimaging in Neurodegeneration, prominent physicians, researchers, and inventors of cutting-edge technologies review the new imaging tools available for diagnosing, treating, and discovering the underlying causes of Parkinson's and Alzheimer's disease, epilepsy, and leukodystrophy. The new technologies demonstrated include novel sequences for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), such as magnetization-prepared rapid acquisition gradient echo (MPRAGE); proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy (1H MRS); new tracers for positron emission tomography (PET) and single-photon emission tomography (SPECT), such as tropane analogs and altropane; neuromolecular imaging (NMI) of neurotransmitters directly in brain synapses of epilepsy patients with unique carbon-based electrochemical sensors; and intrinsic optical signal imaging (IOS), useful in diagnosing "spreading epileptiform depression." NMI and IOS also promise applications in intraoperative guided neurosurgery. Pediatric mitochondrial cytopathies are discussed, as well as nanotechnology, microtechnology, nanoimaging, and microimaging are presented. Devices for diagnosing tumors are also described. To enhance understanding of the potential of these developing technologies, a companion compact disk contains color versions of selected black-and-white illustrations used in the book.
Authoritative and state-of-the art, Bioimaging in Neurodegeneration offers both the physician and researcher a critical survey of the best new technologies for studying neurodegeneration, as well as describing their optimal use in the diagnosis and treatment of specific neurodegenerative diseases.

Reviews

"The editors have succeeded in creating a bridge between the molecular biology of important neurodegenrative disorders and advances in brain imaging." - Journal of Neurosurgery

"...highly recommended to readers who require a solid review and reference text on the state of the art in bioimaging in neurodegenrative diseases." - Annals of Neurology
