Six healthy controls and 12 patients with Parkinson's disease in different disability stages were studied with SPECT using [(123)I]-N-(3-fluoropropyl)-2beta-carbomethoxy-3beta-(4-iodo-phenyl)-nortropane ([(123)I]beta-CIT-FP), a novel tracer, to label the striatal dopamine transporter. The mean uptake of [(123)I]beta-CIT-FP in the putamen was reduced to 60… CONTINUE READING
