    A brain scan to see nerve damage

    Brain Dopaminergic Systems:Imaging With Positron Tomography
    Dopamine transporter brain imaging

    Hi I'd like a brain scan for both of these.
    As well I want to know if there is any nerve
    damage in my brain that I might possibly
    have I don't think MRI's can show nerve damage.
    Can a SPECT/CT scan show nerve damage???
    that's what a Tomography is right?

    I would think that having an MRI done on your spinal cord area would show nerve damage much better than one on your brain.What area do you believe has actual damage?the type of damage you are probably most likely trying to find in most cases would stem from somewhere in the cord/column area,not the brain.Just what do you believe you have?**

    it was an MRI done on the brain.
    Though the MRI doesn't have Tomography...
    unlike a SPECT/CT scan...
