Screening for Parkinson Disease
by Rosalyn Carson-DeWitt, MD
The purpose of screening is early diagnosis and treatment. Screening tests are administered to people without current symptoms, but who may be at high risk for certain diseases or conditions.
There are no screening tests or screening guidelines for Parkinson disease. People with a strong family history of Parkinson disease may want to see a movement disorders expert to discuss genetic testing.
