DaTscan reliability

Hi I’m just trying to find out how reliable a DaTscan is in the diagnosis of YOPD ? I’m still waiting for the results of mine but when I called to see if my results were in yet the secretary said the consultant was off until next week but there was nothing to worry about :woman_shrugging::woman_shrugging: If the scan is normal what is causing all my symptoms & what usually happens next ?? Would be grateful for any info on how you were all diagnosed. Thank you x

Hi Dildon, mine was diagnosed at addenbrooks with a dat scan back in 2019. They told me that I had low dopamine and I think the test is pretty accurate. Think they called it a positive test. Due to my age (39) now, they wanted the dat scan as a belt a braces approach. Hope yours is all ok. All the best.
