Increased medial orbitofrontal [18F]fluorodopa uptake in Parkinsonian impulse control disorders.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Impulse control disorders (ICDs) occur frequently in PD patients. METHODS To investigate the possible involvement of the mesostriatal and mesolimbic monoaminergic function in ICDs associated with PD, we examined patients with (n = 10) and without (n = 10) ICDs using the brain [(18) F]fluorodopa PET. RESULTS Patients with ICDs (e.g… (More)
