Hi sharonkim,

This information sheet gives some more information about diagnosing Parkinson's, and has a section on tests including DaTSCAN and what results can mean: https://www.parkinsons.org.uk/content/diagnosing-parkinsons-information-sheet

Whilst waiting to see your consultant, it might be worth calling our Helpline on 0808 800 0303 or speaking to your GP about your results, and other possible causes for your symptoms.

Best wishes,
