Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Due in large part to an aging population, there is an increase in the prevalence of neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias. However, despite an increasing patient population, increased public awareness, and growing societal disease burden, there remain substantial unmet needs for the early detection, monitoring, and treatment of these degenerative diseases. While few therapies address the underlying disease, many are focused on alleviating symptoms. Regardless of the current treatment options and their respective modes of action, non-invasive imaging remains a central component to disease management. We welcome submissions on novel MR imaging methods, the improvement of established MR imaging methods, quantitative MR imaging, and/or the application of AI to MR imaging methods to diagnose, track, and treat neurodegenerative diseases.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed.
