Direct comparison of spatially normalized PET and SPECT scans in Alzheimer's disease.

Abstract:

UNLABELLED: Hexamethylpropyleneamine oxime (HMPAO) SPECT and 18F-FDG PET depict similar aspects of perfusion and metabolic abnormalities in Alzheimer's disease (AD), but the correspondence between them is not known in detail.
