  Chairs: Andrzej Bogucki, Poland & Viktoriia Gryb, Ukraine 
10:10-11:10 Neuroimaging diagnostic workup in parkinsonian syndromes: always DAT SPECT first?
 Capsule Imaging dopamine transporter (DAT) availability in the striatum using SPECT is an established method to differentiate neurodegenerative from non-neurodegenerative parkinsonisms. However, other imaging methods such as FDG PET also show value in differentiating parkinsonisms. Which imaging method should be used first and in which cases?

This session is jointly organised by the European Association of Nuclear Medicine (EANM) and CONy.
