Recent developments in neuroimaging for the evaluation of migraines

Yasushi Shibata


Although migraines are a common disease, the pathophysiology of migraines is not completely understood. A clinical diagnosis of a migraine is currently made based only on the symptoms, because a clinically useful biomarker or laboratory test for the diagnosis of migraines has not been established. The recent advances in neuroimaging have improved the understanding of the pathophysiology of migraines. These neuroimaging studies may provide useful biomarkers for the diagnosis and monitoring of migraines.
