  • Look Inside

The purpose of this study is to investigate salient diagnostic features of the brain abscess in RI brain scanning.

In 27 patients with brain abscess, 37 scannings were performed in the various stages of their clinical courses. The results were positive in all cases. Among 27 cases, ten cases were investigated by means of the ISOCOUNT SCANNING SYSTEM, the technical detail of which was reported previously. It was proved that the isocount scanning method combined with the multilevel analysis was more sensitive diagnostic aid than the conventional RI scintigraphy.
