The remarkable progress of imaging diagnostic technology has nearly reached the point of determining the causative agent of neurodegenerative diseases, and it is becoming possible to capture detailed images that can reflect macro pathology. However, images are just images. In order to accomplish accurate image diagnosis in accordance with the chief complaint encountered in clinical practice, we must leave the chief complaint as the chief complaint, reevaluate the image on its own merits, and approach the disease condition from this new perspective. In this special feature, I would like to select the appropriate image examination based on the chief complaint of each patient, and furthermore to make use the imaging diagnostic technology to approach the disease condition, from the perspective of the experts of the neuroradiology whom I admire from the bottom of my heart.
