When telephone lines go down, or Internet connections are lost, our communities temporarily come to a halt. What if something similar were found to be happening in Parkinson's? This is the focus of Dr. Schmitz and her team at the PDF Research Center at Columbia University Medical Center.

The prediction of dopaminergic responsiveness in patients with parkinsonism is desirable for effective treatment strategies. We investigated whether striatal dopamine D2/D3 receptor (D2R) binding assessed by (123)I-iodobenzamide SPECT is an independent predictor of dopaminergic responsiveness in patients with parkinsonism.
