qSPECT (quantitative single-photon emission computed tomography) is a type of nuclear imaging test that uses a radioactive substance and a special camera to create 3D pictures of the brain. This imaging measures blood flow levels in up to regions of the brain.

The Presentation for The Neuroscience and Addiction Conferencepresented by Dr. Mechtler. PET (positron emission tomography) is a nuclear imaging technology that is similar to SPECT in that it is a functional brain scan, but it is more costly.

What does it show. Like SPECT, PET scans allow healthcare professionals to view how the brain. Functional Cerebral SPECT and PET Imaging Van Heertum, Ronald L.

The wide spread use of PET and SPECT for investigating brain functions and disorders in humans can be grouped into three distinct applications: (1) PET and SPECT studies investigating regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF), (2) PET studies investigating glucose metabolism, and (3) PET and SPECT Author: Martina Minnerop.

Functional Cerebral SPECT and PET Imaging This Fourth Edition reflects the significant recent progress that has occurred in the field of functional brain imaging, particularly the increased use of PET/SPECT, the use of SPECT and PET.

Functional neuroimaging is the use of neuroimaging technology to measure an aspect of brain function, often with a view to understanding the relationship between activity in certain brain areas and specific. A SPECT scan is similar to an MRI study in that both can show 3D images and “slices” of the brain.

However, whereas MRI shows the physical anatomy or structure of the brain, SPECT shows how the brain works. PET, another nuclear imaging technique, is very similar to SPECT. This Fourth Edition reflects the significant recent progress that has occurred in the field of functional brain imaging, particularly the increased use of PET/SPECT, the use of SPECT and PET in movement disorders and dementia, and advances in radiopharmaceuticals development and instrumentation.

Chapter topics include PET physics and instrumentation, PET radiopharmaceuticals, SPECT. In majority of FDG-PET studies, the images are obtained in interictal phase.

Interictal FDG-PET was reported to be more sensitive than interictal perfusion SPECT [].Studies have demonstrated that there is more reduction in regional cerebral glucose metabolic rates than in regional cerebral perfusion in interictal period [].Interictal PET Cited by: Modern structural and functional brain imaging methodologies have made a colossal impact in the diagnosis and management of epilepsies.1–24 High levels of anatomical and metabolic data are now provided by different brain imaging techniques.

Co-Registration of SPECT/PET Author: CP Panayiotopoulos. The idea that regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF) is intimately related to brain function goes back more than a century ago.

As often the case in science, this idea was initially the result of unexpected observations (see Box ).In what follows we will introduce the area of functional brain imaging (i.e., positron emission tomography or PET, single photon emission tomography or SPECT. Single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT, or less commonly, SPET) is a nuclear medicine tomographic imaging technique using gamma rays.

It is very similar to conventional nuclear medicine planar imaging ICDCM:. PET/SPECT: functional imaging beyond flow. (SPECT) and positron emission tomography (PET) showed that the preference of the basal ganglia might be due to differences in regional cerebral blood Author: Adriaan Lammertsma.

Functional Cerebral SPECT and PET Imaging Functional Cerebral SPECT and PET Imaging Functional Cerebral SPECT and PET Imaging var. In this brief overview the main indications for brain SPECT and PET are discussed.

These imaging modalities are available in most major centres in South Africa and are frequently required for the optimal management of a diverse group of neuropsychiatric conditions.
