Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography (SPECT) Scan

Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography (SPECT) is performed with a “brain specific” radionuclide. This agent crosses the blood brain barrier and remains fixed in the brain. This phenomenon provides an accurate map of regional cerebral physiology.

Our high quality three-camera SPECT Scan unit provides outstanding three-dimensional views for a more detailed, accurate scan evaluation – much greater than standard single camera models.

SPECT Scan is being used successfully in the evaluation of these clinical situations:

  • Differentiating dementia Alzheimer’s from other clinical mimickers: depression, multi-infarct dementia
  • Assessment for cerebro-vascular disease
  • Prognosis of completed stroke
  • Mapping seizure disorders
  • Chronic fatigue syndrome
  • Drug/alcohol abuse
  • Toxic substance exposure
  • Recent or old trauma (concussion)
