Results: There were no significant differences in D2 receptor binding between patients with MDD and controls. All 7 patients showed clinical improvements in response to ECT treatment (P < .001). Significant changes in D2 receptor binding, a mean of 25.2% reduction, were found in the right rostral anterior cingulate (AC) following ECT (P < .001).
