The single-photon-emission computed tomography (SPECT) scan enables clinicians to probe dynamic and metabolic changes in brain tissue through measurement of regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF). Diagnostic benefits of the SPECT scan in clinical neurology have been demonstrated. SPECT scanning has been shown to be more sensitive than morphologic imaging techniques [magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and computed tomography (CT)] in many conditions. However, the use of the scan in assessing… CONTINUE READING
