The images - DaT - Dopamine Transporter, Study demonstrate the pattern of accumulation of the tracer I-123 in the basal ganglia. The study complements achieving neurological assessment to differentiate between the two main categories of conditions that produce tremor: essential tremor (essential tremors) and parkinsonian syndromes. The test is not intended to differentiate the diagnoses within the category of parkinsonian syndromes such as PSP (progressive supranuclear palsy), MSA (multiple system atrophy) and PS (idiopathic Parkinson's disease).
