The purpose of this study was to evaluate the usefulness of brain perfusion single photon emission computed tomography (SPET) to differentiate between progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP) and corticobasal degeneration (CBD). Twelve patients with PSP and 12 with CBD were examined by brain perfusion SPET using 99Tc(m)-ethyl cysteinate dimer (99Tc(m)-ECD). The… CONTINUE READING
