Understanding the loss of brain cells in Parkinson's through PET scans
PET scans are powerful and safe brain scans that allow researchers to witness very small chemical changes taking place in the brain.
6 people who were diagnosed with Parkinson’s in the last 2 years, who are not taking Parkinson’s medication and who are between 40-80 years of age.
3 visits to Kings College: one involving consent, clinical assessments and blood tests (3 hours) and the following two will consist of the scans (each scan will take approx 1.5 hours)
