    18F-FDG used for the assessment of glucose metabolism in the brain

  • Magnetic resonance spectroscopy [ Time Frame: 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    NAA/Cr,Cho/Cr,NAA/Cho ratios to reflect neuronal/cerebral white mater integrity

  • Assessment of language and swallowing functions [ Time Frame: 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    changes in levels of severity: normal/slight/mild/moderate/severe
