Abstract

With cognitive disorders increasingly common, clinicians urgently need faster and more accurate tools to classify such disorders and to noninvasively monitor therapeutic interventions. In this review, we provide information on MRI techniques that enable the study of the morphology, neuronal integrity, and metabolism of dementing illnesses. In addition, we explore the usefulness of such techniques as surrogate markers of these diseases.
