Synopsis: 
Combining the use of diffusion tensor imaging and susceptibility weighted imaging can provide a sensitive method for differentiating between MPTP-induced rhesus monkey model of Parkinson’s disease and wild-type controls.

ABSTRACT

Objective: The aim of this study was to evaluate whether combining diffusion tensor magnetic resonance imaging (DTI) and susceptibility weighted imaging (SWI) techniques would provide a sensitive method for differentiating between 1-methyl-4-phenyl-1,2,3,6-tetrahydropyridine (MPTP)-induced rhesus monkey model of Parkinson’s disease (PD) and wild-type controls.

The Editor,

Sir,

Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is a genetic and familial cardiovascular disease which can cause severe arrhythmia and heart failure. With irregular hypertrophy and disorganized arrangement of cardiomyocytes on histological picture, the normal myocardium macrostructure appears in whole or part as ventricular wall thickness, especially ventricular septal thickness (1).
