OBJECTIVE We aimed to assess whether a combined analysis of dopamine transporter (DAT)- and perfusion-SPECT images (or either) could: (1) distinguish atypical parkinsonian syndromes (APS) from Lewy body diseases (LBD; majority Parkinson disease [PD]), and (2) differentiate among APS subgroups (progressive supranuclear palsy [PSP], corticobasal syndrome [CBS], and multiple system atrophy [MSA]). METHODS We recruited consecutive patients with neurodegenerative parkinsonian syndromes (LBD, n… CONTINUE READING
