SPECT is a valuable tool for looking at how your brain functions, which leads to a better understanding of your symptoms and issues. Using SPECT as part of the Amen Clinics Method gives us a deeper understanding to help us target treatment specifically to your brain.

At the Amen Clinics, our experience with nearly 125,000 brain SPECT scans and 28 years in clinical practice guides us in delivering the highest quality SPECT images that are most useful to patients and practitioners.
