Computed tomography for Huntington's disease

Neuroradiology. 1977 Jun 27;13(4):173-5. doi: 10.1007/BF00344209.


CT scans of twelve patients with Huntington's disease were compared with a large series of normal and abnormal scans. The frontal horn/bicaudate ratio in the Huntington's disease group was found to be much smaller than and statistically different from the normal or abnormal CT scan groups. The CT scan appears to be a useful adjunct in the evaluation of patients with suspected Huntington's disease.
