Inversion recovery images allowed accurate classification of PD patients from controls [10, 11]. Changes predominated in the lateral segments of the SN [10, 11] in line with the preferential degeneration of dopaminergic neurons in the caudal and lateral SN [60]. Using MT contrast, reduced SN volume was detected in PD patients compared with control subjects [22]. The MTR was also significantly reduced in the SN as well as other basal ganglia (globus pallidus, putamen, caudate nucleus) in PD patients [65, 66].
