    ..In vivo imaging techniques provide powerful and noninvasive tools to quantify the degree and extent of this degeneration and its functional consequences. ..

    ..We propose that (11)C-donepezil PET imaging may be able to quantify the parasympathetic innervation of organs but also detect nonneuronal cholinergic activity in infections. ..

    ..Decreases in (11)C-donepezil binding may, therefore, represent a marker of parasympathetic denervation of internal organs, but further validation studies are needed. ..

  5. Borghammer P, Knudsen K, Brooks D. Imaging Systemic Dysfunction in Parkinson's Disease. Curr Neurol Neurosci Rep. 2016;16:51 pubmed publisher
    ..In this review, we summarize current knowledge about peripheral imaging in Parkinson's disease. ..

    ..These findings suggest a more severe loss of striatal nerve terminal function compared with neuronal cell bodies, in accordance with the post-mortem literature. ..
