OBJECTIVE To assess the relationship between striatal dopa decarboxylase capacity, D2 dopamine receptor binding, and energy metabolism in Parkinson's disease (PD). DESIGN Positron emission tomographic (PET) studies of glucose and dopa metabolism and D2 dopamine receptor binding in the caudate nucleus and putamen of patients with PD at different Hoehn and Yahr (HY) stages using PET and the tracers 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG), 6-18F-fluoro-L-dopa (FDOPA), and 11C-raclopride (RACLO).
