Pathology
In brief: Exam & imaging
Any physician can spot the more-or-less symmetrical loss of coordination.
Imaging studies will often show cerebellar shrinkage. A smoker needs to be checked for a hidden lung cancer that can damage the cerebellum remotely. Most of these have an associated damaged gene and a dna lab may discover it after the diagnosis of cd is finalized.
