Neuroimaging

Neuroimaging is an important tool in clinical neurology. One of the main objectives of this Scientific Panel is to foster the correct use of neuroimaging in Europe. As a field of knowledge, imaging of the nervous system is experiencing a tremendous expansion because of the complexity of the brain and the quick advances in imaging technology. Thus, the neurologist needs updated information on the appropriate and economical use of these tools. Guidelines on training and the use of these tools in multiple sclerosis, stroke and motor neuron disease are available. In addition, the panel provides guidelines for the application of neuroimaging techniques for the diagnosis of patients with dementia in clinical practice, and to clarify the current status and clinical role of advanced neuroimaging tools in these disorders.


Neuroimaging is also an important research tool. Another objective of the panel/ sub-committee is to facilitate research on neuroimaging across Europe. A survey led by Drs. Herholz and Baron was published in 2001. The panel also has contributed to the consensus document on European Brain Research to guide the planning for the VII Framework Programme.

This Scientific Panel comprises members from all EAN member countries. Please feel free to browse the Neuroimaging forum and give us your opinion on the field of Neuroimaging and aspects that would require Task Forces to study or implement them. Feel also free to indicate your willingness to serve on the Scientific Panel on Neuroimaging or in one of its Task Forces.
