1 The Utility of Positron Emission Tomography Scanning in Parkinson’s Disease, Dr. Jason Seewoodhary1 ,Dr. Stephen Wong MD FRCP (UK)2
Positron Emission Tomography (PET) can visualise progression of Parkinsonian pathophysiology from early- through to end-stage disease generating objective quantitative longitudinal data, which enables assessing responses to treatment. The utility of PET scanning in the management of Parkinson's Disease is further exemplified by: refining the differential diagnosis of Parkinson's Disease as a distinct neurochemical entity; monitoring the efficacy of foetal nigral tissue transplantation; assessing the effects of surgical interventions such as deep brain stimulation; and guiding clinical management by studying the effects of drug-induced adverse effects. This concise review critically considers the role of PET scanning in the management of Parkinson’s Disease.
