We estimated the T1 values of the SN in healthy subjects and clarified its correlation with the SN characteristics obtained in neuromelanin (NM) images to identify an imaging biomarker for early diagnosis of PD. In healthy adults, the area and T1 value of the SN, measured quantitatively from PSIR images, has different characteristics from those obtained from NM images, and may help assess SN degeneration.
