      My wife was diagnosed with PD last year, tremors on the right side, stiffness, difficulty writing, and some balance issues. Her DATscan revealed her left striatum had a Z-score of -3.8 on 3 regions of the left side. According to my research, more than
      -1.67 is PD and less than -2.5 is severe. With covid-19 and phone-in appointments, it’s been hard to talk to the doctor and I certainly don’t want to scare my wife. Her clinical expression doesn’t seem much beyond stage one. Does anyone know if the Z score can extrapolate a prognosis going forward, or maybe a rate of progression? I’m worried for her, thx!
