Migraine is considered to be a functional neurological disorder. For several years cerebral blood flow studies have been fueling the controversy surrounding the pathophysiology of migraine headache. Tc-99m HMPA O SPECT brain imaging was performed during the headache-free period in 44 migraineurs. The findings were compared with those of age 17 and sex-matched controls. The SPECT analysis was performed by using a 360 degrees rotating single head gamma camera system (Toshiba GCA 602A/SA, Japan), equipped with a LEAP collimator, interfaced to a Toshiba computer system, after 20 minutes following the injection of 350-550 MBq of Tc-99m HMPAO.
