CereScan Open HouseDr. Gregory Hipskind, M.D. conducted an educational and clinical discussion regarding brain SPECT imaging completed at DIS, and analyzed by both DIS radiologists and Dr. Hipskind at CereScan.

CereScan is CereScan is one of the country’s leading providers of SPECT (Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography) brain imaging for patients and physicians. Unlike an MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) or a CT (Computed Tomography) scan, which provides information about structural (anatomical) abnormalities in the brain, a SPECT scan provides information about how your brain is working. This is a very important distinction. In many cases the brain’s structure may be normal, while the functioning is abnormal.

This is an exciting new tool in the DIS arsenal of imaging studies. DIS is the EXCLUSIVE provider of this exam in Louisiana.
