Cerebral perfusion SPET correlated with Braak pathological stage in Alzheimer's disease.
Reductions in regional cerebral perfusion, particularly in the posterior temporo-parietal lobes, are well recognized in Alzheimer's disease. We set out to correlate perfusion changes, using (99m)Tc-HMPAO single photon emission tomography (SPET), with the pathological stage of Alzheimer's disease. The 'Braak stage' of the distribution of neurofibrillary pathology in post-mortem brains was used to classify SPET scans taken in life from a mixed (dementia and control) elderly population into the ...Expand abstract
