  • Advanced neuroimaging techniques-in patients with sporadic MNDs
  • Diffusion tensor imaging-region of interest (ROI)-based DTI studies, decreased fractional anisotropy (FA) values along CST in ALS patients
  • Functional imaging-in MND patients with UMN signs
  • MND, group of disorders-preferential damage to upper (UMN) and/or lower (LMN) motor neurons
  • Neuroimaging in patients-with familial MND
  • Neuroimaging studies, different patterns-cortical neuronal vulnerability, homozygous for D90A mutation of SOD1 gene vs. sporadic ALS
  • Neuroimaging techniques, as positron emission tomography (PET)-and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI)
  • Neuroimaging, in management of motor neuron diseases (MNDs)
