Summary of Clinical Use
Ioflupane is a radiopharmaceutical drug. It is used for striatal dopamine transporter visualization using single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) brain imaging, for the diagnosis/differential diagnosis of Parkinson's disease [1-2], and diagnosis of dementia with Lewy bodies [3].
Mechanism Of Action and Pharmacodynamic Effects
Ioflupane binds to dopamine transporters. As these are diminished in Parkinson's disease, the pattern of binding in the striatum is abnormal and is diagnostic of the disease.
