BIAC researchers led by Jenna Merenstein and David Madden conducted column-based QSM analyses of cortical iron in patients with Alzheimer’s disease (AD), and healthy controls. Iron increased for AD patients in topographically heterogenous manner across the cortical mantle, which may help explain the qualitative difference in the cognitive decline in AD as compared to healthy aging.
