We reviewed conventional and advanced MR imaging of Parkinson disease. Using DTI, FA in the substantia nigra and cingulum reduced in PD patients compared to normal controls. ASL showed hypoperfusion in the occipital lobes. Advanced technique such as DTI and ASL may clarify new pathophysiological changes of PD and help early diagnosis and monitoring of PD.
