My PhD thesis will focus on cerebrovascular health and its relationship with cognitive impairment in Parkinson’s disease. I will use a novel MRI technique, 4D flow, to determine whether measures of cerebrovascular anatomy and haemodynamics are impaired in PD and whether they increase in severity with cognitive impairment.
