UPDRS is the standard manual scale based on
performance and cognitive tasks. It takes 20-30 min of the neurologist time to complete the test.
Dopamine uptake ligand beta-CIT, a SPECT agent is the most sensitive of biomarkers for the diagnosis of Parkinson's disease.
Beta-CIT targets the dopamine transporter on the dopamine neuronal terminals and quantifies the loss of those terminals.
