Brain SPECT artifacts in patients having metallic cranioplasty.

Abstract Text

Over the past few years, we have performed several brain SPECT studies on patients who have had previous head trauma that required metallic cranioplasty. Transaxial images showed clearly defined photon-deficient areas extending from the brain tissue into the area of the scalp. To investigate the extent and pattern of this type of artifact, SPECT brain phantom studies were performed and compared with the patient studies.
