Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Neuro-Imaging in Parkinson’s Disease (PD) is in a phase of rapid evolution. From molecular imaging to PET-based imaging, to multi-modal MRI, neuroimaging in PD has reached a critical mass of investigative capacity. The ability of neuroimaging to diagnose, monitor response to treatment, and predict symptom development in PD has made important strides. This has resulted not only in an improved understanding of PD itself, but also in imaging tools with utility in the clinic and in clinical research. Thus, this is a fertile and opportune time to review the past, present, and future of neuroimaging in PD, including consideration of the field through the lens of the NIH, industry, basic science, and clinical/translational science perspectives. Papers addressing these topics are invited for this Special Issue, especially those combining a high academic standard coupled with a focus on identifying the remaining challenges in the field and suggesting pathways forward.
