    I have read in many places that MSA and PD + will initially show an abnormal DATSCAN, however definitive diagnosis of MSA & Pd+ may take years to confirm after initial diagnosis of Parkinsonism from DATSCAN (as Adam's MDS stated.) This does not sound like what your MDS is telling you NN..........? Sounds like he is saying people that eventually get dx'd with MSA have had "normal" DATSCANS....... Now, I'm confused........

    BTW, swamper...you are right...I thought we had PD just up to a few weeks ago. So I was on the side that DaT scans were not always correct. I am kinda confused now, because PWP with negative scans are numerous...and it would be unusual for them all to have MSA or PD+. As I said earlier...epilepsy at one time was dx of numerous seizure disorders that now can be categorized. Mental illness is now a term for many dimensions. .With research, maybe PD will have additional subsets... which leads us to more definitive avenues for a cure. 😊👍 Hugs to u, Swamper. NN
