DaTscanTM Ioflupane I123, a radiopharmaceutical will be used as an adjunct diagnostic tool in combination with single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) to evaluate striatal dopamine transporter (DAT) distribution in patients with idiopathic Parkinson's disease. Patients will be monitored twice - once at baseline, and again after 1 year - to identify potential biomarkers for progression of Parkinson's disease.
This study was designed to assess whether GPI 1485 has the ability to delay or stop disease progression and improve symptoms in patients with Parkinson's disease (PD) that is already being treated with a dopamine agonist therapy. Whether the drug is working will be assessed by evaluating clinical endpoints such as UPDRS scores and by evaluating images, obtained by SPECT scan, of brain activity. Participants in the study will be given either placebo or GPI 1485 treatment. The du...
This study assesses dopamine transporter density using single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) brain imaging with an investigational radiopharmaceutical, [123I]ß-CIT, in research participants with Parkinson's disease.
The main objectives of this protocol are as follows: 1. To assess the sensitivity and specificity of ANAM-PD in detecting cognitive status in patients with Parkinson disease (PD) and healthy controls (HC). 2. To validate the specific individual domains of the ANAM-PD cognitive battery by comparisons to available standardized cognitive evaluation scales administered to the patients with Parkinson disease with and healthy control subjects. 3. To eval...
Prognostic interest of bone scintigraphy in bone metastatic prostate carcinoma (BMPC) has been shown. Recent technological advances allow to perform quantitative bone SPECT-CT in routine practice. The aim of this study is to assess the prognostic interest of quantitative bone SPECT-CT in BMPC.
This project aims to clarify the role non-motor symptoms in the development of Parkinson's disease (PD) and to improve diagnostics at very early stages of PD. The project involves multidimensional measures of disease biomarkers together with brain dopamine transporter (DAT) imaging with [123I]FP-CIT single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT).
About 46% of patients suffering from Parkinson's disease present pain disorders. Parkinson disease is characterized by loss of dopaminergic neurons. The aim of this study is to assess the relationship between the loss of dopaminergic neurons and the existence of pain in Parkinson's disease. Using single photon emission computerized tomography (SPECT) imaging (123I FP-CIT, which binds dopamine transporter) and the determination of subjective pain threshold, the investigators wil...
Study participants who have been clinically diagnosed with Parkinson disease will receive no treatment, treatment with either levodopa, or treatment with Mirapex for a period of 12 weeks. Over the course of the study subjects will travel to the Institute for Neurodegenerative Disorders (IND) in New Haven, Connecticut for brain imaging.
Myocardial perfusion imaging is an efficient tool to assess the risk of major cardiac events for patients with known or suspected coronary artery disease. If the test is normal, or if the abnormalities of perfusion represent less than 10% of the left ventricle myocardium, the patient is considered at low risk and should be managed with optimal medical treatment only. Recently, new gamma cameras using semi-conductor detectors have been developed. Their diagnostic performances h...
The underlying goal of this study is to assess [123I]MNI-420 SPECT imaging as a tool to detect A2aR density in the brain of PD and HD research participants to be compared with similarly aged healthy subjects.
We propose to build on preliminary data evaluating non-dopaminergic/non-motor clinical biomarkers to more fully assess these markers at the threshold of Parkinson disease (PD). Development of reliable biomarkers for both dopaminergic and non-dopaminergic manifestations of Parkinson disease (PD) and related disorders may dramatically accelerate research on PD etiology, pathophysiology, and therapeutics. Biomarkers are broadly defined as characteristics that are objectively meas...
There has been a shortage of nuclear isotopes, not only in Canada but around the world. New, more sensitive SPECT cameras can obtain better images in shorter scan times. These cameras have also shown the ability to use a smaller dose of radioisotope to obtain the images. New software has been tested on the standard camera, the GE Infinia-Hawkeye SPECT/CT. The Diagnostic Imaging Department of The University of Ottawa Heart Institute has also acquired a new camera, the Discovery ...
This study evaluates SPECT image data acquired from Spectrum Dynamics' multi-purpose CZT SPECT camera. All subjects will undergo routine clinical Anger SPECT imaging and an additional SPECT acquisition on the CZT SPECT camera. The quality of images from each device will be compared.
Parkinson´s disease is based on a Lewy body degeneration of cerebral and extracerebral neurons. This Lewy body degeneration includes cerebral cholinergic neurons besides dopaminergic neurons. In previous studies the investigators found that some clinical parkinsonian symptoms - primarily hypokinesia and rigidity - significantly correlate with the dopaminergic nigrostriatal degeneration which was quantified by dopamine transporter imaging. In contrast to that, resting or...
This study will use SPECT/CT imaging to assess the effect of percutaneous revascularization treatments in patients with Peripheral arterial disease and diabetes mellitus, in whom the disease can progress more quickly than in patients without diabetes.
This study aims at combining inspiration breath-hold myocardial perfusion SPECT with coronary CT angiography.
Patients with Parkinson's disease (PD) are known to be affected by subtle cognitive impairment early in the disease course, mostly in the executive field. Procedural motor skills, mainly controlled by the basal ganglia associative loop (in particular dorsal caudate nucleus) (Rodriguez-Oroz et al., 2009), have also been studied in patients with PD (Schnider et al., 1995; Muslimovic et al., 2007; Terpening et al., 2013). However, the correlation of dopaminergic 123I-FP-CIT SPECT ...
The overall purpose of this research study is to identify the disparity in ischemia measurement between fractional flow reserve (FFR) used in the cardiac catheterization laboratory and myocardial perfusion stress- single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT). This study aims to determine the correlation between simultaneous FFR and SPECT obtained using regadenoson in the catheterization laboratory.
This will be two separate but identical studies: ALSE-A-02a, ALSE-A02b. Each study is designed to evaluate the diagnostic accuracy and safety of a single dose of 123I-ALTROPANE® in subjects with upper extremity tremor for less than three years. Currently, no radiopharmaceutical diagnostic imaging agent has been approved by the FDA in the U.S. for use in diagnosing Parkinson disease and related Parkinsonian syndromes. The diagnosis of Parkinsonian syndromes in the U.S. is base...
The purpose of this study is to investigate the utility of dopamine transporter imaging in monitoring and predicting the progression of Parkinson disease. This study will be performed in the PRECEPT cohort, an already existing cohort of 806 subjects recruited to participate in the study called, A Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled, Dose-Finding Study to Assess the Efficacy and Safety of CEP-1347 in Patients With Early Parkinson’s Disease - (PRECEPT), sponsored by ...
The primary purpose of this study is to characterize the acute anti-dyskinetic properties of intravenous levetiracetam in Parkinson's disease patients who have been optimized on antiparkinsonian medication. The secondary objective is to study the effect of intravenous LEV on additional motor and cognitive symptoms of PD.
Patients with suspected or known coronary artery disease who are scheduled for clinically indicated SPECT myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI) and will receive invasive coronary angiogram are recruited to receive SPECT MBF study.
The aim of study is to determine if 99mTc Annexin V-128 (AxV- 128/Tc) single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT)-computed tomography (CT) can detect perioperative lung injury. The investigators will study patients undergoing major surgery, specifically Whipple procedures (pancreatico-duodenectomies) and compare AxV-128/Tc SPECT-CT scans before and after surgery in Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) and non-COPD patients.
By creating a neurogenebank from Parkinson's disease patients' blood donations we will ultimately be able to define genes for Parkinson's disease and other neurological conditions.
