The time course of vasogenic oedema after focal human head injury--evidence from SPECT mapping of blood brain barrier defects.

Abstract

We have tomographically mapped changes in the blood brain barrier (BBB) (99 mTc Pertechnetate) in 20 patients with acute contusions, and four with acute subdural haematomas in situ. The changes were related to regional CBF, (99 mTc HMPAO SPECT) T2 weighted MRI scans, CT abnormalities and the clinical features. Seventy-five percent of contusions were… (More)
