Mood disorders

Depression, Bipolar and Anxiety Disorders

Almost 1 in 4 people will struggle with a mood or anxiety disorder, or both, during their lifetime. 1 in 6 people with bipolar disorder or depression will die by suicide. Many of these suicides could have been prevented with the right treatment plan.

SPECT Imaging reveals that mood and anxiety disorders have several different patterns. This helps explain why one treatment may work for one person, but not for another.

SPECT imaging can help:

  • Direct treatment based on underlying brain activity
  • Assess if there are other conditions that need to be treated
  • Assess how effectively treatments are working
  • Increase insight into brain functioning and increase treatment compliance
  • Help families understand the brain condition and better help their loved one
