N7 - Neuroscience in the Clinic: Dopamine Transporter (DaT) Imaging

Event Time: Thursday April 27, 2017 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm
Topic(s): Movement Disorders
Director(s): Ryan Walsh MD, PhD, FAAN
Description: Dopamine transporter (DaT) imaging has recently been developed as an adjunctive diagnostic tool in Parkinson's Disease. There remain questions, however, regarding how DaT imaging is optimally utilized in the clinical setting. This program will endeavor to improve understanding of DaT imaging through case presentation, discussion of the scientific development of DaT imaging, review of the impact of DaT imaging on the case presented, and review of the current understanding of DaT imaging and other emerging imaging modalities in Parkinson's Disease. An interactive panel discussion immediately following the didactic session will provide further opportunity for participants to consider DaT imaging and other emerging imaging modalities in Parkinson's Disease.
Completion Message: Participants should have an improved understanding of the clinical utility of DaT imaging as well as its limitations, including as applied in a real-world clinical setting. Participants should also have improved understanding of the science behind both DaT imaging and other emerging imaging modalities, as well as what is on the horizon for neuroimaging in Parkinson’s Disease.
