Article: SPECT with 99mTc]-d,l-Hexamethyl-Propylene Amine Oxime.
Regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF) was measured with high resolution brain dedicated single photon emission computer tomography (SPECT) and [99mTc]-d,l-hexamethyl-propylene-amine-oxime (HMPAO) in 25 patients with probable Alzheimer's disease and in 25 control subjects, selected according to rigorous inclusion and exclusion criteria. The aim was to analyse the topography of rCBF deficits in individual patients.
By Claudio Rossetti. The cerebral distribution of99mTc-labeled d, l, hexamethyl-propylene-amine-oxime (99mTc-HMPAO) as a function of rCBF and time was examined in rats and in man. The results of this study confirm that99mTc-HMPAO is distributed in
Abstract In herpes simplex encephalitis (HSE), the authors noted an evident dissociation between the 99mTc-ethyl cysteinate dimer (ECD) and 99mTc-d,l-hexamethyl-propylene-amine oxime (HMPAO) single photon emission computed tomographies (SPECTs). The patient was a 5-year-old boy with diffuse type of pontine glioma, which was treated with hyperfractionated radiotherapy. Two weeks after the completion of radiation therapy, a lesion suggesting that of HSE was noted in the right fronto-temporal region on magnetic resonance images.
