A patient with neuro-Behcet disease is described. SPECT using Tc-99m HMPAO was performed to evaluate brain perfusion. The brain SPECT revealed decreased perfusion in the right frontal, parietal, temporal, and occipital lobes. MRI showed high intensity lesions in the white matter in the right periventricular centrum semiovale and frontal region on T2(More)
[Purpose] High resting blood pressure and heart rate are associated with the risk of cardiovascular events. In patients with decreasing amounts of slow twitch muscle fiber, hypertension may develop and resting heart rate may increase. Measurement of the amount of slow twitch muscle fiber and capillary density using muscle biopsy is inconvenient and(More)
SPECT imaging with I-123 IMP or Tc-99m HMPAO was performed in two patients with Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease to evaluate abnormalities in brain perfusion. In the first patient, there was decreased perfusion of the left frontal, parietal, and temporal lobes. CT and MRI were negative. In the second patient, there was patchy perfusion and slightly decreased(More)
