We provide data and images that other brain scans miss

CereScan is one of the country’s leading providers of SPECT (Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography) and PET/CT (Positron Emission Tomography/Computed Tomography) brain imaging for patients and physicians. Unlike an MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) or a simple CT (Computed Tomography) scan, which provides information about structural (anatomical) abnormalities in the brain, both SPECT and PET/CT scans provide functional information about how your brain is actually working. This is a very important distinction. In many cases the brain’s structure may be normal, while the functioning is abnormal. How is a treating physician supposed to accurately know what is not working properly in your brain without looking at it?

Think of it this way: if your car is not running properly, an MRI or CT scan would take a picture of the car’s engine, which would allow you to see all of the parts of the engine and ensure that they are there. However, it would not give you any information about how the engine is functioning. You need to turn the engine on and get a sense of how it runs, which is what our functional brain scans do. Objectively identifying the areas of your brain that aren’t functioning properly will enable your treating physician to provide the most targeted treatment possible.

We make invisible problems visible.
