    Just wondering what results people may have had with this test. Thanks Poppy

    it was suggested that my son have a SPECT scan, but since no insurance, was way too expensive...it's done in the nucleark med dept of hospital if I remember right, and would've cost about $3K!

    The only good benefit would be proving disability for SSI, altho maybe in hindsight we should have done it.

    The good news is that I have read a study that showed abnormal SPECT scans of brains of people with chronic lyme do show a reversal after successful long-term treatment.

    all the best,
    Victoria

    Is way more sophisticated and shows brain abnomalities that s good for establishing disability.
    Dr. Myra Preston which you can search out does this work.
    She use to work down the hall from Dr. Cheney and found out the Vast majority of his cfs patients had abnormal results.
    Mine were very abnormal.
