Quantification of striatal dopamine transporters with 123I-FP-CIT SPECT is influenced by the selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor paroxetine: a double-blind, placebo-controlled, crossover study in healthy control subjects.


UNLABELLED Dopamine transporter (DAT) imaging with (123)I-FP-CIT ((123)I-N-omega-fluoropropyl-2beta-carbomethoxy-3beta-(4-iodophenyl)nortropane) SPECT is frequently used to detect loss of nigrostriatal cells in parkinsonism. Recent (123)I-beta-CIT ((123)I-2beta-carbomethoxy-3beta-(4-iodophenyl)tropane) studies have shown a significant increase in striatal… (More)
