Parkinson's Disease Signature Imaging

Study Title:

New Approaches to Parkinson's Disease Research - A research program to improve early detection and clinical care

Improved understanding of the features of different subtypes of Parkinson's disease may improve diagnosis and clinical care.  The goal of this study is to develop imaging markers for diagnosing Parkinson's disease and measuring disease progression.  

To participate in this study, subjects will undergo an MRI, a neurological exam, cognitive assessments, and a blood draw. These evaluations will typically be conducted over 2-3 days.  

This research project is funded by the the Michael J. Fox Foundation and is a collaboration between the University of California, San Francisco and the San Francisco VA Medical Center.
