Figure 1: (a) Normal dopamine transporter single-photon emission computed tomography scan appearance, normal dopamine transporter scan appearance with head of the caudate nucleus appearing like a full stop (large arrow), and the putamen appearing like tail (small arrow). (b) Abnormal dopamine transporter scan in our patient: The left side is normal with normal putaminal tail (large arrow). The right side has abnormal tracer uptake - absence of putaminal tail, but the normal appearance of the caudate nucleus was like a full stop (small open arrow) (Type 1 abnormal uptake as per Benamer et al.)[2]
