Brain imaging techniques have provided substantial insight into the pathophysiology of hepatic encephalopathy (HE). Magnetic resonance imaging gave hint to the fact that there is an increased deposition of manganese especially in the basal ganglia. Single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) and positron emission tomography (PET) showed that the preference of the basal ganglia might be due to differences in regional cerebral blood flow and an additional redistribution of blood flow from… CONTINUE READING
