Importance of (123)I-ioflupane SPECT and Myocardial MIBG Scintigraphy to Determine the Candidate of Deep Brain Stimulation for Parkinson's Disease.

Abstract

(123)I-ioflupane SPECT (DaTscan) is an examination that detects presynaptic dopamine neuronal dysfunction, and has been used as a diagnostic tool to identify degenerative parkinsonism. Additionally, myocardial (123)I-metaiodobenzyl guanidine (MIBG) scintigraphy measures the concentration of cardiac sympathetic nerve fibers and is used to diagnose Parkinson… (More)
