Abstract

We performed [123I]FP-CIT/SPECT in 20 drug-naive Parkinson's disease (PD) patients, 10 with unilateral akinesia/rigidity at onset (arPD) and 10 with additional tremor-at-rest (tPD), to evaluate whether resting tremor at onset is associated with differences in striatal dopamine transporter binding. Patients of the two cohorts were matched for age, disease duration (
