brain scan

This is a technique to demonstrate the pattern of blood perfusion of the brain. The procedure involves intravenous injection of the radionuclide such as technetium 99m pertechnetate, mercury-210, or radioiodinated albumin. This method can diagnose cerebral hemorrhage, cerebrovascular accidents (CVA), tumor, hematoma, AV malformations, and aneurysms.
