Absolute perfusion varies in different brain regions for Parkinson’s disease (PD) and Multiple System Atrophy (MSA). These were studied quantitatively using ASL-MRI and the mean perfusion for each brain region was compared. Significant decrease in perfusion was noted for PD compared to healthy subjects for left and right caudate, anterior and posterior cingulate gyrus and occipital fusiform gyrus. For MSA, right caudate showed significant decrease in perfusion compared to healthy subjects.
