Parkinson's disease is overdiagnosed clinically at baseline in diagnostically uncertain cases: A 3‐year European multicenter study with repeat [123I]FP‐CIT SPECT
Overdiagnosis of Parkinson's disease (PD) is suggested by specialist review of community diagnosis, and in postmortem studies. In specialist centers 4 to 15% of patients entered into clinical trialsExpand
