Assessing the value of MRI for the diagnosis of tauopathies

MRI and tauopathies Progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP) and Corticobasal Degeneration (CBD) are two subtypes of Frontotemporal Lobular Degeneration characterized by cerebral accumulation of tau protein (tauopathies). These diseases present classically with motor...
