Abstract

Although single-photon emission computerized tomography of the dopamine transporter (DAT-SPECT) is useful for diagnosing parkinsonian syndrome, its applicability toward the early phase of Parkinson's disease remains unknown. We enrolled 32 patients showing parkinsonism with normal cardiac The striatal asymmetry indexes were significantly lower in group 1 than in group 2 (p<0.05), but there were no differences in the specific binding ratios between the two groups. The combined use of striatal asymmetry index on DAT-SPECT and cardiac MIBG scintigraphy might offer useful clues for the differential diagnosis of the early phase Parkinson's disease from other parkinsonian syndromes.
