UNLABELLED We evaluated the posterior circulation in patients with moyamoya disease by SPECT and MRI. METHODS Six patients with idiopathic moyamoya disease were studied by SPECT, MRI and angiography. Patients received an injection of 555-740 MBq of 99mTc-HMPAO, after which SPECT images were taken. The cerebral-to-cerebellar activity ratio in five cerebral regions was calculated to assess the regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF). The SPECT and MRI findings were then compared with angiographic… CONTINUE READING
