Imaging findings of migraine

Headache. 2006 Jul-Aug;46(7):1095-107. doi: 10.1111/j.1526-4610.2006.00503.x.


Increasingly sophisticated neuroimaging techniques have allowed researchers to begin to define functional and anatomical characteristics of migraine. This paper reviews current knowledge and techniques employed. Assessing present-day knowledge limitations it concludes that with parallel advances in the technology of imaging and the pathophysiologic understanding of migraine, a reliable biomarker may be discovered in the future.
