Brain changes in patients with anorexia



This study shows a relationship between anorexia nervosa and brain volume which is measured with MRI.


Key points:

  • Automated brain segmentation based on 3-D MRI seems to reliably estimate brain volume.
  • This technique detected brain atrophy in patients suffering from anorexia nervosa.
  • Brain changes in anorexia nervosa can be quantitatively and qualitatively followed-up by MRI.
