Neurology PET is used to:

  • Localize areas of the brain causing epileptic seizures-determining whether surgery is an option
  • Provide key diagnostic information for Alzheimer’s disease in select patients
  • Alzheimer’s disease, Prkinson’s disease, and Huntington’s diseas

For pediatric neurology patients, PET particularly aids in defining the seizure focus site for Epileptic seizure disorders.
