BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Atypical Parkinsonian disorders (APD) frequently overlap in clinical presentations, making the differential diagnosis challenging in the early stages. The present study aimed to evaluate the accuracy of the [18 F]fluoro-deoxy-glucose positron emission tomography Statistical Parametric Mapping (SPM) optimized procedure in supporting the early and differential diagnosis of APD. METHODS Seventy patients with possible APD were retrospectively included from a large clinical… CONTINUE READING
