Abstract In a patient with Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease (CJD), MRI showed increased signal intensity in striatum, thalamus, and cerebral cortex in images obtained with TR 1,600 msec, and TE 35 and 70 msec. In postmortem examination, all affected areas showed the hallmarks of CJD, such as status spongiosus, gliosis, and nerve cell loss. MRI can help to differentiate CJD from other dementing processes.
