Abstract

Neurodegenerative non-Alzheimer’s dementias (NADs) are an increasingly relevant problem on the global scale, due to the progressive aging of the world’s population. Diagnosis of NADs remains a challenge due to the overlap of clinical and neuroimaging features of different NADs. In this chapter, after showing the conventional magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) finding, the pathologies of different NADs along with studies that have applied the advanced MRI neuroimaging techniques to study different NADs will be presented. The NADs discussed here, include Huntington's Disease, Progressive Supranuclear Palsy, Multiple System Atrophy, CorticoBasal Dementia, Parkinson's Disease with Dementia, and Dementia with Lewy bodies.
