11) Single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) has revealed cerebral perfusion deficits in CJD that may be used to differentiate it from other dementias, such as Alzheimer's disease.
Beginning with the discovery of X-rays in 1895, he traces the history of imaging through today's computed tomography, MRI, positron emission tomography (PET), and single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT); considers key controversies such as radiation safety and protection, whole-body scanning for cancer detection, the contribution of these expensive technologies to the rising cost of health care in the US, the unequal distribution of facilities in developing countries, ethical questions, and the 2009 mammography guidelines controversy; and provides related primary source documents.
