Vulnerability of the nigrostriatal system as detected by transcranial ultrasound
Objective: To assess the incidence of a hyperechogenic substantia nigra (SN) by transcranial sonography (TCS) in healthy people and to evaluate whether an enlarged hyperechogenic SN area isExpand

Striatal FP-CIT uptake differs in the subtypes of early Parkinson’s disease
Summary.In idiopathic Parkinson’s disease (PD), a tremor-dominant type (TDT), an akinetic-rigid type (ART), and a mixed type (MT) are distinguished. We compared cerebral [I-123]FP-CIT SPECT in the PDExpand

Transcranial sonography and [123I]FP-CIT SPECT disclose complementary aspects of Parkinson's disease.
Hyperechogenic signal of substantia nigra (SN) in transcranial sonography (TCS) and reduced striatal uptake in FP-CIT SPECT are common findings in idiopathic Parkinson's disease (PD). But so far itExpand

FP‐CIT and MIBG scintigraphy in early Parkinson's disease
Methods provided by nuclear medicine may be helpful in diagnosis of Parkinson's disease (PD). For that purpose, the sensitivity of iodine‐123 metaiodobenzylguanidine ([123I]MIBG) scintigraphy andExpand
