Toxic brain injury may be caused by numerous environmental factors that include but are not limited to infection, assault from chemicals and lack of oxygen. CereScan’s brain SPECT imaging shows areas of decreased blood flow when the brain has been injured by toxins or lack of oxygen.
Toxic brain injury may occur during exposure to toxic substances. Toxic substances such as pollution, smoke, carbon monoxide, chemical fumes, asbestos, mold, alcohol, drugs, pesticides, solvents, fuels, mercury exposure, bacteria and viruses can have a negative impact on brain function. Toxins can enter the body through the lungs, mucous membranes, digestive tract and skin.
Drug and alcohol use contributes to toxic brain injury. Drug and alcohol abuse is one of the most common causes of brain injury. CereScan’s brain SPECT imaging provides an objective and very compelling visual demonstration of the areas of damage which can help break through the denial that often accompanies substance abuse.
