SPECT

Single photon emission computed tomography Imaging A non-invasive technique for constructing cross-sectional images of radiotracer distribution, to evaluate CNS disease–acute ischemic episodes, epileptic foci, vascular and Alzheimer's dementia, myocardial perfusion, and detect subtle changes in bone metabolism.
