Figure 6–5. Early subacute presentation of traumatic brain injury on SPECT.A 61-year-old man had a motor vehicle collision with a tree. This resulted in severe trauma with loss of consciousness requiring neurosurgical interventions. After several weeks of hospitalization, the patient was released. Within a few days, the patient'€™s family brought him to a psychiatric emergency service with agitation, incoherence, cognitive impairment, and psychosis. Two different sectional levels in the brain are illustrated with companion axial CT, T2-weighted MR, FLAIR MR, and SPECT. Note that the injury is more apparent on the FLAIR images than on the T2- weighted MR and CT images. The true extent of the injury, however, can be appreciated only on the SPECT images.CT = computed tomography; FLAIR = fluid-attenuated inversion recovery; MR = magnetic resonance; SPECT = single-photon emission computed tomography.
