Abstract

Single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) provides cost-effective informations on regional cerebral perfusion and, indirectly, on regional cerebral metabolism. Its easy of use facilitates the application of SPECT in clinical neurosurgery. SPECT is emerging as a useful tool for the management of patients with stroke, subarachnoid hemorrhage, arteriovenous malformations, carotid artery disease. These applications may expand the clinical usefulness of this technique in the future.
