MDS Presentation on PPMI- Associations between brain microstructural and dopaminergic integrity in PD: A joint diffusion tensior and DAT imaging study

Reduced 123I-DAT measures of the putamen as well as of the caudate were associated most prominently with reduced FA values near the right supplementary motor areas (SMA) and medial part of the motor cortex (p < 0.001, at a cluster level of 100 voxels). In contrast, increasing symptom severity was associated primarily with reduced FA values bilaterally in the substantia nigra as well as in some regions in the brain stem (p < 0.001, at a cluster level of 100 voxels)
