Relative regional cerebral blood flow (rrCBF) was measured by single-photon emission tomography (SPET), using technetium-99m-d,l-hexamethylpropylene amine oxime (HMPAO) as flow tracer, in 23 patients with normal pressure hydrocephalus (NPH). 1000 MBq 99mTc-HMPAO was given intravenously and the rrCBF calculated as regional/cerebellar count level ratios. The patients were examined before and 3–12 months after ventriculoperitoneal shunt surgery. rrCBF was also determined in ten healthy aged… CONTINUE READING
