Neuroimaging techniques have evolved over the past several years giving us unprecedented information about the degenerative process in Parkinson's disease (PD) and other movement disorders. Functional imaging approaches such as positron emission tomography (PET) and single photon emission computerised tomography (SPECT) have been successfully employed to detect dopaminergic dysfunction in PD, even while at a preclinical stage, and to demonstrate the effects of therapies on function of intact… CONTINUE READING
