DaTscan Imaging Services
Crozer-Keystone Health System offers DaTscan, the only FDA-approved medical imaging agent that is used to differentiate between parkinsonian syndrome and essential tremor. Crozer is Delaware County’s first hospital to offer this service.
DaTscan begins with the patient drinking Lugol’s Iodine Solution prior to injection of an imaging drug into a patient’s bloodstream. About three to six hours late, the patient undergoes a single photo emission computed tomography (SPECT-CT) scan. The SPECT-CT images of the patient’s brain are examined by a radiologist.
