SPECT finds brain blood flow abnormalities in pro football players

SNMMI SmartBrief | Apr 27, 2016

Researchers using SPECT and a machine-learning technique found that current and former National Football League players had lower-than-expected blood flow in 36 areas of the brain, especially in the anterior superior temporal lobes, rolandic operculum, insula, superior temporal poles, precuneus and cerebellar vermis. The approach described in the Journal of Alzheimer's Disease was used for imaging of 161 players and 124 controls, yielded 92% to 94% accuracy in distinguishing players with abnormal brain activity from healthy controls. In the NFL group, 83% of participants had memory deficits and 29% had experienced depression. AuntMinnie.com (free registration) (04/26)
