When you suspect brain trauma of any kind in Lake Worth, our SPECT Scan is a fast and affordable alternative to a standard MRI or PET scan. Less than 30 minutes in length, our SPECT scan locates areas within the brain and identifies any parts that are functioning abnormally. It can be used to identify dementia, Alzheimer's disease, damage by strokes, and any other kind of brain trauma. It can also highlight details within the bones, spine, and neck. There are many uses for the information gained by a SPECT scan, and when administered by our reliable professionals, you will be able to avoid any fears or discomfort.
In Lake Worth, a SPECT Scan by Nuclear Medical Scans, lead by esteemed Dr. N. Henry Pevsner, is a simple technique which begins with a small injection. The injection, consisting of gamma-emitting radioisotopes, usually includes a marker radioisotope which is enabled to attach to the targeted area of the body. Once it is in place, our medical experts will be able to see the ligand concentration that we have created with a gamma camera. The results we are able to achieve can be communicated directly with your personal physician, to offer an accurate diagnosis and move forward with your treatment. Call today for more information and book an appointment.
The most common uses of Lake Worth SPECT Scan are to help diagnose heart problems with stress tests, brain disorders, and spine arthritis and infections.
