UNLABELLED Diving for sport and recreation has increased in recent years, resulting in more incidences of diving illness. Therefore, we studied potential use of regional cerebral blood flow SPECT imaging with 99mTc-HMPAO in the management of divers who have experienced decompression illness (DCI). METHODS A group of ten sports divers who had no experience of DCI were compared with ten sports divers who had experienced at least one episode of DCI. Transaxial SPECT images were first compared… CONTINUE READING
