Pathfinder Brain SPECT Imaging at The Neuroscience Center
Director: Dan G. Pavel, M.D.
High Definition Brain SPECT imaging is a non-invasive procedure for functional imaging of the brain (brain perfusion imaging ). Our advanced image processing capabilities make it a very effective resource for the evaluation of patients with co-existing Neuropsychiatric conditions.
The indications for brain SPECT at TNC are comorbidity/treatment-resistance and to refine a differential diagnosis. In particular the diagnostic picture in conditions of limbic discharge, multiple concussions, substance abuse, developmental onset illness like multiple learning disability, or cognitive impairment can be greatly enhanced by our approach to brain SPECT scanning. A typical patient at our multi-specialty clinic might present with developmental failure or so-called treatment-resistant illness after having been assessed & treated by numerous providers. Even in these situations we have been able to find a treatment plan that worked – after all of the prior treatment failures.
Dr. Pavel has a long experience in Academic Nuclear Medicine, including a one year sabbatical at the National Institutes of Health, in Bethesda Maryland, dedicated to functional brain imaging evaluation.
Brain SPECT is performed on the premises of The Neuroscience Center in Deerfield, IL ,
The addition of perfusion Brain SPECT has allowed the Neuroscience Center to further its ability to fully evaluate the consequences of co-existing conditions and to prescribe a treatment strategy that is specifically tailored to each patient. This kind of objectively measured multi-specialty evaluation actually shortens the amount of time spent on the path from initial visit, to substantive symptom relief.
