Nuclear medicine imaging can play an important role in the diagnosis of stroke risk, the differential diagnosis of vascular and parenchymal cerebral abnormalities, and the understanding and management of poststroke recovery. Radionuclide brain-imaging methods can assess hemodynamic, vascular, and metabolic status before and after stroke. Several techniques,(More)
PURPOSE To demonstrate the utility of semi-quantitative circumferential-profile analysis of regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF) SPECT in Alzheimer's disease (AD) versus white matter vascular dementia (WM-VaD). METHODS Subjects underwent dementia evaluation, MRI and Tc-99m HMPAO SPECT. rCBF patterns from 11 AD and 20 WM-VaD patients were compared to 17(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE This study evaluated blood flow and metabolite changes in cerebral diaschisis from internal capsule region infarction using regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF) single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) and 1H magnetic resonance spectroscopic imaging (MRSI). We hypothesized that complementary measures of diaschisis effects in(More)
