The objective of this article was to study the reproducibility and effect of levodopa on dopamine transporter function measurements using 2beta-carbomethoxy-3beta-(4-[18F]fluorophenyl)tropane ([18F]CFT) positron emission tomography (PET). Seven de novo patients with Parkinson's disease (PD) were studied twice, before and after three months of levodopa medication. Eight healthy volunteer subjects participated in the reproducibility study. The [18F]CFT PET scan was done twice with an interval of… CONTINUE READING
