Figure 1. Neuroradiological findings. (A) Magnetic resonance fluid-attenuated inversion recovery image shows diffuse mild atrophy and mild leukoaraiosis. (B) Iodine 123-metaiodobenzylguanidine myocardial scintigraphy showing no decrease according to the heart-to-mediastinum ratios. (C) Iodine 123-N-omega-fluoropropyl-2-beta-carbomethoxy-3-beta (4-iodophenyl) nortropane single-photon emission computed tomography showing reduced dopamine transporter availability in the bilateral striatum. The average specific binding ratio (SBR) for the whole striatum using DaTView software (AZE Corp., Tokyo, Japan) was 2.77 (right striatal SBR=3.05; left striatal SBR=2.48).
