Neurological examination

A narrowing of the blood vessels to the brain, for example through arteriosclerosis, can impair its blood flow. In this case, there is a considerably increased risk of suffering from a stroke. The localised blood-flow conditions can be evaluated precisely at rest and after pharmacological stress using brain scintigraphy. Other applications are to provide evidence of epileptic focuses and neurodegenerative diseases.
