rCBF measurements determined by HMPAO SPECT are deined in a relative (rather than absolute) fashion and are determined by assessing the difference in proportional compound uptake between a region of interest (vasospasm) and an arbitrarily selected "normal" region, usually the cerebellum or contralateral hemisphere [1, 10, 57](Figure 7).
