This contribution demonstrates that a short (402) 3D
multi-echo GRE sequence at 7.0T targeting the midbrain
allows a precise characterization of Substantia Nigra
and the visualization of its inner organization in
healthy subjects and in patients with Parkinsons
disease. This imaging sequence permits the diagnosis of
Parkinsons disease with remarkable accuracy.
