I recently had a Datscan. I know I have PD, however, seeing the images where a section on the right side of my brain was lit up twice as much as the left side blew my mind. There it was, in full color, confirmation that I have PD. This makes sense as the right side brain controls left side body and my left side of my body doesn’t listen to me very well any more.
Have you had a Datscan? If so, how did you feel when you saw the images? If you have not had one done, why? The jury is still out as to whether or not a Datscan makes sense. however, at least I have a baseline now for going forward.
