The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of clozapine on regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF) and its relationship with response to treatment. In addition, we aimed to study the influence of clozapine on proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy ((1)H-MRS) findings in the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC) in a subgroup of patients.(More)
Neuropsychological deficits are among the main symptoms of obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS), which could be related to impaired cerebral blood flow (CBF). We conducted a study in 20 subjects tested in our Sleep Laboratory, to assess regional CBF and cognitive function in OSAS. Our measurements included technetium-99m hexamethylamino propylenamine(More)
OBJECTIVE Radiology information system (RIS) is basically evolved for the need of radiologists and ignores the vital steps needed for a proper work flow of Nuclear Medicine Department. Moreover, CT/MRI oriented classical PACS systems are far from satisfying Nuclear Physicians like storing dynamic data for reprocessing and quantitative analysis of colored(More)
Moyamoya disease (MMD) is a cerebrovascular disorder involving stenosis of brain vessels. Brain perfusion SPECT in MMD demonstrates impaired perfusion in ischemic areas. We present a 6-year-old boy with MMD. The patient had numbness on the right arm and simultaneous electroencephalography changes while studying arms up on the table. To differentiate seizure(More)
Subtraction ictal single photon emission tomography (SPET) co-registered to magnetic resonance imaging (SISCOM) is an ictal-interictal brain perfusion SPET subtraction method, developed for evaluation of brain perfusion changes applied for the identification of epileptic foci. The aim of this study was to test whether regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF)(More)
