AORIN brain is a promotion of Nuclear Neurology by applying statistical parametric analysis of brain imaging. It consists of creating normal data base, free software for brain SPECT and PET image analysis (eZIS) provided by Dr. Hiroshi Matsuda (Tokyo), FUJIFILM Toyama Chemical Co., Ltd.
(Tokyo), and AOFNMB. The eZIS software has been already distributed in Taiwan, Korea, China, Bangladesh, Thailand, Philippine, and Malaysia. Each member state is now creating normal data base in each region. The limitation of the current project is availability of SPECT tracers. AOFNMB is now negotiating with providers of tracers to Asia and Oceania regions. I-123 brain tracers such as I-123 DAT scan for SPECT dopaminergic system imaging to differentiate between Parkinson’s disease and other parkinsonian syndrome, and I-123 iomazenil for neuron density imaging are now under negotiation for distribution.
