WOW, Adam.

THanks for telling your story.

I also hope for a time when either the knowledge gained from imaging research is used to develop more specific diagnostic screening tools, or that using the imaging technology to directly screen for disorders, will be routine.
Where are still far from that. Notice how small the study's N is. The imaging technology is still so expensive that the studies are only looking at small numbers, which to me is problematic in two ways. 1. the studies are still small enough to be vulnerable to criticism about generalizability, and 2. the prospect of using the imaging techniques in the clinical setting to diagnose disorders is still a long way off.
But the fact that this type of research is coming out with such fascinating info thrills me.

I read Rappaport's book The BOy Who Couldn't Stop Washing. Very interesting.
BTW, how did you find Rappaport as a doc to work with given how high profile she is? Was access an issue?
