Singled Photon-Emission Computed Tomography (SPECT) Image - No ongoing toxic exposure of any kind to date shows this activity.  The affected areas of the brain are due to a virus or the neuro-immune system itself, until proven otherwise.

Overview

Single Photon-Emission Computed Tomography (SPECT) is a sophisticated nuclear medicine study that looks directly at cerebral blood flow and indirectly at brain activity (or metabolism).[1]

SPECT uses the injection of a radioisotope that is carried in the blood to the tissues. The isotope passes into the tissue and the radiation can be detected using a gamma camera. The greater the blood flow the more is taken up by the tissue. The resulting computed image displays the concentration as a color and the convention for the image is that white is the highest level followed by red, yellow, green, blue etc.[2]

SPECT Brain Scans is a new, advanced diagnostic nuclear medical Imaging procedure that provides "cross sections of the brain Images". Unlike MRI and CAT Scans which only depict anatomy, SPECT brain scans shows actual brain blood flow function.[2]
