Using Science to Generate Hope

How do you know what’s wrong unless you look into the organ that is responsible for your symptoms?

What is brain SPECT?

Traditional imaging using CT scans or MRI can miss the root causes of symptoms. Many neurological disorders can be tied to blood flow abnormalities.

Single-photon emission computed tomography (qSPECT) is a type of nuclear imaging procedure that uses a radioactive substance (99mTc-HMPAO) and a special camera to capture millions of datapoints per imaging session. This procedure is primarily used to track blood flow in the heart, brain and bones.

If the results from your imaging look like grayscale x-rays or “cartoonish” in color, you are not getting the full capabilities from SPECT!

The qSPECT® Difference

CereScan’s advanced software, CereMetrix®, uses the SPECT datapoints to create 3D pictures of the brain and measure blood flow levels in up to 120 regions of the brain to pinpoint areas of statistically hypo (decreased) and hyper (increased) blood flow. We call this process Brain qSPECT® (quantitative SPECT), and it represents the gold standard in statistically measured brain functionality.

In addition to your brain qSPECT®, we also utilize clinical assessments, cognitive and neuropsych screens to get to the root cause of your symptoms. When you see the results from these tools, your doctor can begin to target treatments to affected areas of the brain, which brings HOPE!
