Rodent Brain Imaging with SPECT and CT

We describe in vivo single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) and contrast-enhanced computed tomography (CT) techniques to image perfusion and vasculature structures within rodent brains using a combined SPECT-CT scanner dedicated to small animal imaging. A highly-focusing pinhole SPECT with 99mTc-exametazime (HMPAO) was acquired to image brain… CONTINUE READING
