Both article collection and podcast explore the neurobiologic basis of these diseases, describe challenges as we move into an era of precision medicine, review cutting-edge preclinical research on neuroimaging in these fields and present new clinical imaging information of interest to an international, multidisciplinary audience.
Neurodegenerative and psychiatric imaging provide both challenges and new opportunities for the neuroimaging community and this article collection and podcast will contribute to improved clinical care of these patients as well as inspire ongoing and innovative new research in this rapidly evolving arena. The articles are essential reading for anyone with an interest in neuroimaging.
Dr John Port explains, “Despite several decades of imaging research, clinically useful imaging findings in patients with psychiatric disorders remain just out of reach. This BJR special feature delves into the reasons why, exploring the limitations of our current best imaging, examining the underlying neurobiology of psychiatric disorders in animals, and providing an inspiring look at the future of psychiatric radiology focusing on the newer functional imaging techniques.”
