The development of single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) has lead to increased interest in brain nuclear medicine imaging for a variety of neurologic diseases. The principal tracers (Tc-99m HMPAO and Tc-99m ECD) map cerebral perfusion and have either shown efficacy or promise in cerebrovascular disease, the evaluation of stroke, transient ischemic attack, vasospasm following subarachnoid hemorrhage, and arteriovenous malformation.
