With the dopaminergic presynaptic ligand FP-CIT and single photon emission tomography we have shown a severe dopaminergic degeneration in a patient with a necropsy confirmed diagnosis of dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB). We suggest that functional imaging of the nigrostriatal dopamine pathway helps to distinguish DLB from Alzheimer's disease during life.
