Tremor is one of the common movement disorders encountered in a clinical practice. Tremor is often difficult to diagnose and can be easily mistaken for another disorder, hence diagnostic imaging is employed to provide objective information. The morphometry, signal changes, neuromelanin, and iron deposition can be evaluated by MRI, whereas cardiac sympathetic nerve and dopamine transporter degeneration are detected by means of nuclear medicine. The purpose of this article is to provide an overview of the role and indications of imaging test, as well as a review of the methods in which the findings of images are interpreted.
