The aim of this study was to determine the areas involved in episodes of transient global amnesia (TGA) by calculation of cerebral blood flow (CBF) using 3DSRT, fully automated ROI analysis software which we recently developed. Technetium-99m L, L-ethyl cysteinate dimer single-photon emission tomography ((99m)Tc-ECD SPET) was performed during and after TGA(More)
PURPOSE We have previously reported the method of regional cerebral blood flow measurement using N-isopropyl-p-[123I]iodoamphetamine, in which the input function into brain was estimated from one-point venous blood sampling value based on the method of causality analysis between input and output functions. In the present study, we examined the effects of(More)
The following process conventionally has been followed to develop quantitative images of cerebral blood flow: (1) mean cerebral blood flow (mCBF) is calculated by the Patlak plot method; (2) a SPECT slice that includes the basal ganglia is selected; and (3) based on the value of mCBF calculated by the Patlak plot method, the SPECT slice is corrected by the(More)
Mean cerebral blood flow (mCBF) in the slice including the basal ganglia (reference slice) is necessary for the quantification of regional CBF using Patlak plot and BUR methods on 99mTc-ECD cerebral perfusion SPECT. The mCBF was calculated from the mean counts of this slice. A region of interest (ROI) has been manually set on the reference slice to obtain(More)
It has been noted that the manual settings of region of interest (ROI) to the single-photon-emission-computed-tomography (SPECT) slice lacked objectivity when the fixed quantity value of regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF) was measured previously. Therefore, we jointly developed software "Brain ROI" with Daiichi Radioisotope Laboratories, Ltd. (Present(More)
