Your doctor may order lab tests, such as blood tests, to rule out other conditions that may be causing your symptoms. Imaging tests — such as MRI, CT, ultrasound of the brain, and PET scans — may also be used to help rule out other disorders. Imaging tests aren't particularly helpful for diagnosing Parkinson's disease.
