Anxiety Disorder


Do you or someone you know suffer from Anxiety Disorder?

CereScan’s SPECT brain scan is a diagnostic tool used by doctors and other healthcare providers to help diagnose Anxiety Disorder.

Nearly 40 million people nationwide suffer from Anxiety Disorder, which makes it one of the most common psychological conditions in the U.S. It is important to note that Anxiety often occurs alongside other disorders (frequently referred to as dual diagnosis), making it very difficult to properly diagnose and treat without objective diagnostic information.

But there’s hope. Perhaps you’ve tried therapy, psychiatry, and other methods for resolving Anxiety Disorder and still feel that you lack answers and need more help. Brain imaging is an important tool in that it pinpoints diagnoses and guides treatment in ways that in-clinic conversations often can’t.

If you think you or someone you love may be affected by Anxiety Disorder and would like a consultation, Contact Us and one of our dedicated staff members will get back to you shortly.

Diagnosing Anxiety Disorder

People who suffer from anxiety disorder generally exhibit symptoms that may include any number of the following:

  • Feeling nervous
  • Feeling helpless
  • Having a sense of impending doom
  • Breathing rapidly
  • Trembling
  • Excessive sweating
  • Frequently fearing the worst outcomes in situations
  • Having trouble concentrating on anything other than the present worry

Anxiety disorder often occurs in conjunction with other disorders such as Depression or Bipolar Disorder, making it very difficult to properly diagnose and treat without the assistance of objective diagnostic brain imaging. It is reported that those who suffer from Anxiety Disorder see an average of five physicians before being successfully diagnosed and treated.

By using CereScan’s state-of-the-art SPECT brain imaging, our specialists can identify the areas of the brain that are generally involved in Anxiety Disorder and provide the treating practitioner with an evaluation supported by objective evidence. Positive identification of regional brain dysfunctions, as well as the presence or absence of other conditions (such as Depression or Bipolar Disorder), allows our physicians to correlate a patient’s behavioral problems with the underlying biologically based disorder. In other words, your anxiety may be in your brain, not just your mind.

Our comprehensive report can help your medical provider create a targeted, individualized treatment plan that will lead to better outcomes and improve the quality of your life.
