Use of MRE reveals new insights on the microstructural integrity of the brain in Alzheimer’s disease


  • High-resolution magnetic resonance elastography (MRE) methods were able to report a global reduction in both brain volume and stiffness in people with Alzheimer’s disease compared with cognitively healthy older adults.

Why this matters

    MRE is a is a new, non-invasive and highly sensitive MRI technique that may help elucidate the neural mechanisms underlying the development and progression of the disease.
