About this Research Topic
There is an increasing availability of sophisticated imaging tools that provide images of the central nervous system. This has impacted the diagnosis of neurological diseases in veterinary patients by allowing non invasive in vivo diagnosis of diseases previously diagnosed post mortem by the pathologist. It has also increased our understanding of disease process allowing comparison between species and particularly between non-human species and humans. Neurological diseases which in humans are chronic have their counterparts in spontaneously occurring disease in veterinary species and this has caused great interest in research communities.
In this Research Topic we target researchers from every part of the spectrum concerned with neuroimaging. This includes approaches to the diagnosis of clinical disease in individuals, the screening of at risk groups and the use of spontaneous and induced animal models of disease in humans and experiences with novel imaging techniques prior to and in parallel with deployment in humans.
We are seeking publication concerned with anatomical, functional or fused data derived from neuroimaging. Novel approaches to image acquisition, applications of quantification methodologies, and use of radiolabelled tracers are welcome. Imaging modalities will include but are not limited to magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), positron emission tomography (PET), single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT), Computed tomography, optical imaging and magnetoencephalography, ultrasonography and radiology.
We hope that this Research Topic will be a forum for the wide community of individuals concerned in clinical and translational neuroimaging.
