HI, I had a dat scan two years and the result came back as equivocal , my symptom’s have got progressively worse since then I even need a stick to walk now and I am always exhausted. I have now got a date for another dat scan next month, could it be possibly for the next scan to show the same results ???


Hi @wales_1,

This is quite a tricky situation and I can understand why you maybe feeling concerned. I think the best thing you can do is wait for the second Datscan results for an official diagnosis. We have a section on our website which goes into detail about the interpretation of a Datscan which you may find helpful. You can find this page here - https://www.parkinsons.org.uk/professionals/clinical-summary-use-datscan.

Best wishes,
