Alzheimer's Disease in Down's Syndrome with SPECT.
Alzheimer's disease often occurs in patients with Down's syndrome. SPECT scanning with I-123 IMP and Tc-99m HMPAO identifies decreased cerebral perfusion and metabolism in these patients at lower cost. In this case, SPECT scanning revealed changes in Alzheimer's disease in a Down's syndrome patient.
