The investigation of regional blood flow by SPECT has proved a useful tool in the assessment of various brain disorders. Although most SPECT investigations have been performed on adults, the number of publications on the use of SPECT in children is increasing. The aim of this study was to compare the results of brain SPECT and quantified EEG in a small group of children with heterogenous supratentorial lesions. Our results indicate that there are correlations between regional cerebral blood flow and quantitatively analysed EEG background activity in children with various supratentorial lesions. The statistical analysis indicates that decreased blood flow is coupled with an increased amount of slow wave activity on EEG. These results complement previous findings in adults with stroke and partial epilepsy.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
