Abstract
This paper concerns about regional cerebral blood flow measurements in patients suffering from frontal lobe dementia. The purpose of the study was to contribute of drawing a picture of a diagnostic asset, help making an early contribution to distinguish different kinds of dementia. The 25 female and 18 male patients are a part of The Longitudinal Dementia Study in Lund. Their rCBF measurements have been thoroughly examined to possibly find blood flow changes in particular areas in the brain. The result shows noticeable focal impairments in the frontal and fronto-temporal areas, mostly bilaterally, as well as severe subnormal blood flow levels in 18 patients. This makes an important platform for further research. Key words: Frontal lobe... (More)
