Early detection of Rasmussen's syndrome by brain SPECT imaging

Clin Nucl Med. 1992 Sep;17(9):730-1. doi: 10.1097/00003072-199209000-00010.


The authors describe a patient with Rasmussen's syndrome detected by grossly abnormal results of Tc-99m HMPAO SPECT brain imaging obtained with a single-headed camera. Results of magnetic resonance imaging and cerebrospinal fluid examinations were normal.
