A brain scan can help with dementia diagnosis such as Alzheimer's disease. Dr Nathan Smith from the University of Bath's Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering worked with physicists from Nuclear Medicine departments in Bristol and Bath to create a database of normal brain blood-flow, using an imaging technique known as SPECT (Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography). This database could help to improve the diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease across the UK.
