Four patients with neurological Wilson's disease were investigated using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and positron emission tomography (PET). All patients had dystonia as their major clinical manifestation but also had dysarthria and at the presentation of the disease had choreoathetoid movements in at least one limb. A multitracer approach with PET was used to visualize various aspects of dopaminergic function; [11C]-(+)-nomifensine (NMF), [11C]raclopride (RAC) and [11C]-L-DOPA (one… CONTINUE READING
