Cognitive-nigrostriatal relationships in de novo, drug-naïve Parkinson's disease patients: a [I-123]FP-CIT SPECT study.


To unveil cognitive-nigrostriatal correlations in Parkinson's disease (PD), 30 de novo, drug-naïve PD patients and 15 patients with essential tremor (Controls, CTR) underwent a neuropsychological (NPS) battery and brain SPECT with [I-123]Ioflupane, as a biomarker of nigrostriatal function. Automatic extraction of uptake at caudate and putamen level was… (More)
