Sensitivity tends to be low, even with multiple head devices, because of the need for collimators; as a result, the imaging time is typically 20–30 min and radiotracers that provide a static unchanging distribution are typically used. Unlike PET, an accurate measured correction for attenuation is not convenient, and in some camera configurations is not possible at all. The methods currently used provide only an approximate attenuation correction (Bailey, 1998), and thus limit the absolute quantification of regional radioactivity.
Interpretation of changes in cerebral blood flow and metabolism Physiologic considerations To interpret changes in PET and SPECT studies, it is necessary to understand the relationships among CBF, metabolism, and local neuronal activity, and the mechanisms by which CBF and metabolism can become abnormal. , 1981). , 1988). , 1988). Within physiologic limits, these increases parallel the stimulus rate and the rate of neuronal firing. Most of the brain’s additional glucose consumption during increased neuronal activity is used to maintain ionic gradients across cell membranes, which must be restored after depolarization (Yarowsky and Ingvar, 1981).
It also involves measurement of rCBF with H215O and the PET/autoradiographic method, and of rCBV with C15O. , 1991). , 1992). , 1990). Single photon emission computed tomography Principles The radionuclides used in SPECT decay by emitting a single photon or gamma ray from their nucleus; radioactivity distribution is estimated by detection of gamma rays. , 1994; Devous, 1995). 96 cm by 30–50 cm) diameter) scintillation crystal of sodium iodide, which gives off a localized pulse of light when it absorbs a gamma ray.
