The term Jupiter SPECT Scan is for the most part used for brain scanning that can identify the brain functions, and the areas of the brain that don't function as well as they once did. It can also identify dementia, Alzheimer disease, strokes, and any trauma to the brain. The exam is less than 30 minutes in length, and a lot more affordable than a function MRI or PET scan. A SPECT scan can also show details inside the bones, spine, and neck. You will find the services at Medical Diagnostic Scans to be extremely professional and reliable. Dr. N Henry Pevsner and his medical team will take good care of you during any procedure you need to have done.
The Jupiter SPECT Scan technique involves having to delivery gamma-emitting radioisotope (a radionuclide) into the patient, usually with an injection. From time to time, the radioisotope is a soluble dissolved ion, like an isotope of gallium(III). Usually, a marker radioisotope is connected to a particular ligand to make a radio-ligand, whose substances bind it to specific tissues. This particular partnership blends the ligand and radio pharmaceutical, so they can be attached to the target area of the body. At this stage we can see the ligand concentration with a gamma camera. Dr. N Henry Pevsner and his team do an excellent job administering this scan.
The most common uses of Jupiter SPECT Scan are to help diagnose heart problems with stress tests, brain disorders, and spine arthritis and infections.
