Part Description

LP33574-2   Views brain death protocol
Nuclear medicine brain death scans assess the blood flow to the brain. The absence of radionuclide activity within the brain is consistent with the diagnosis of brain death but is not in itself sufficient to make the diagnosis. Scintigraphy and EEG are considered confirmatory tests for brain death, while clinical exam and 4-vessel cerebral angriography are considered diagnostic.

Change Reason
The scale has been changed from "Nar" to "Doc" to fit with the CDA model.; Method of "Radnuc" was changed to "NM". The LOINC/RadLex Committee agreed to use a subset of the two-letter DICOM modality codes as the primary modality identifier. Changed System from "Brain" to "Head>Brain" for conformance with LOINC/RadLex unified model.
