SPECT which is a nuclear scan assessing changes in cerebral blood flow, is controversial when it comes to characterizing particular injury or disease states.Larabee(2005) notes that substance abuse and emotional disorders can have an impact on SPECT results and interpretations.Unile(1992) fund that 6% of noninjures, medically healthy subjects mat demonstrate focal abnormalities on SPECT Imaging. The Therapeutics and Technology subcommitte of The American Academy of Neurology(1996) rated SPECT as inappropriate for use in evaluation of Post-Concussive Symptoms.
