Susceptibility-weighted imaging which uses magnitude and phase information to enhance the local tissue susceptibility variations information is very sensitive to paramagnetic substances. Copper is paramagnetic ion, and Wilson's disease is copper ovreloading disesas. The aim of this study was to evaluate the susceptibility-weighted imaging filtered phase shift in brain gray nuclei of Wilsons disease
