study revealed both the brain volumetric and relaxometric characteristics from synthetic
MRI technique in Parkinson's disease (PD). Significantly differences were found
in fraction of gray matter (GM), white matter (WM) and myelin. We also observed
significantly differences in WM T1 value, GM and CSF proton density value.
Hence Synthetic MRI might be a quantitative tool for clinical diagnosis of PD.
