Twenty-six patients with acute cerebral infarction were imaged by 99Tcm-hexamethylpropyleneamine oxime (HMPAO)-labelled white blood cell brain (Tc-WBC) single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT). The regions of interest were equally placed in the whole hemispheres of both sides with summation of all transaxial slices in the Tc-WBC SPECT. The asymmetric indices (AI) were calculated as 200[[(right - left)]/(right + left)]. Grouping of patients with cerebral infarction was based on… CONTINUE READING
