This study looked at the potential for Quantitative Susceptibility Mapping (QSM) for longitudinal detection of demyelination and iron accumulation in YAC128 mouse model of Huntington disease. Control and YAC128 mice were scanned at 9, 12, and 15 months of age; with a number of mice sacrificed after each timepoint for histological validation and correlation (ongoing). Current results shows the potential for QSM in detecting demyelination is several white matter regions and iron accumulation in grey matter.
