OBJECTIVE To optimize the clinical uses of repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS), we compared the effects of rTMS on somatosensory-evoked potentials (SEPs) and regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF) using different phases (monophasic vs. biphasic) or frequencies (0.2Hz vs. 0.8Hz) of stimulation. METHODS In the first experiment, different phases(More)
PURPOSE We compared the regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF) obtained by pulsed continuous arterial spin labeling (pCASL) and iodine-123-N-isopropyl-p-iodoamphetamine (IMP) single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) using 3-dimensional stereotactic region-of-interest (ROI) software for automated definition of ROIs in anatomic regions of the brain.

OBJECTIVE Molecular imaging of nigrostriatal dopamine transporters (DAT) and sympathetic cardiac innervation with single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) are useful tools for differentiating idiopathic Parkinson disease (PD) from other degenerative parkinsonian syndromes (non-PD). Nevertheless, these modalities are often insufficient for(More)
