DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "Imaging in Movement Disorders: Imaging Applications in Non-Parkinsonian and Other Movement Disorders, Vol 143. International Review of Neurobiology" book from Elsevier Science and Technology has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.
Imaging in Movement Disorders: Imaging in Other Movement Disorders and Dementia, Volume 143 provides an up-to-date textbook on the use of imaging modalities across the spectrum of movement disorders and dementias. The book brings together lessons learned from neuroimaging tools in the content of movement disorders, including idiopathic and sporadic forms of Parkinson's disease, Huntington's disease, Atypical Parkinsonism, Dystonia, Essential Tremor, and more. Specific chapters cover Neuroimaging Applications in Dystonia, Neuroimaging Applications in Essential Tremor, Neuroimaging applications in Restless Leg Syndrome, Neuroimaging Application in Tourette's Syndrome and TIC Disorders, Neuroimaging Applications in Functional Movement Disorders, and Neuroimaging Applications in Cerebellar Disorders.
Addition sections cover Molecular Imaging of Parkinson's Disease Cognitive Impairment, Structural MRI in Parkinson's Disease Cognitive Impairment, Functional MRI in Parkinson's Disease Cognitive Impairment, Molecular Imaging of Dementia with Lewy Bodies, Structural and Functional MRI of Dementia with Lewy Bodies, Transcranial Sonography in Movement Disorders, Imaging transplantation in Movement Disorders, Hybrid PET-MRI Applications in Movement Disorders, amongst other topics.
- Offers a complete review of the application of neuroimaging tools in Dystonia, Essential Tremor, Restless Leg Syndrome, Tourette's syndrome, and Tic and Movement Disorders
- Covers the role of neuroimaging research in movement disorder dementias
- Presents the importance of imaging techniques as biomarkers of disease progression and treatment response in therapeutic trials

- Politis, Marios Professor Marios Politis (MD MSc DIC PhD FRCP FEAN) is a Professor of Neurology & Neuroimaging, Consultant Neurologist, and the Director of Neurodegeneration Imaging Group at King's College London and King's College Hospital. He is a Visiting Professor at University of Exeter Medical School. His research involves the use of molecular (PET), functional (fMRI) and structural imaging as a method of investigating aetiology, pathophysiology, and effects and complications of novel therapies in Neurodegenerative disorders. His high-quality research has led to a body of scientific work investigating the pathophysiology of movement disorders such as Parkinson's and Huntington's disease and to publications in high impact scientific journals including Nature, Lancet, and Science journals, and also in the Journal of Clinical Investigation, Annals of Neurology, Brain, Neurology and JAMA Neurology. Professor Politis is a recipient of fellowships from and grant project awards from the Michael J Fox Foundation for Parkinson's research, CHDI Foundation, Medical Research Council, European Union, Lily and Edmond J. Safra Foundation, Parkinson's UK, National Institute of Health Research UK, Biomedical Research Centre UK and Alzheimer's Disease Association UK.
