UNLABELLED Epidepride is a benzamide derivative with very high affinity for D2 receptors, which, in its [123I]-labeled form, can be used for SPECT. The aim of this study was to evaluate the usefulness and accuracy of [123I]epidepride-SPECT for the differential diagnosis of movement disorders. METHODS SPECT imaging with a triple-headed scintillation camera was performed in 9 patients with Parkinson's disease, 9 patients with probable multiple system atrophy (MSA), 1 patient with progressive… CONTINUE READING
