Call It

On this single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) brain scintography, normal is the top figures and abnormal is the bottom figures. What a hot nose!

Challenge: What does his ancillary test show?

This is brain death. The bottom figures show lack of brain perfusion and the “empty light bulb” and “hot nose” signs. Brain death is a clinical diagnosis, but occasionally, ancillary tests may be used.
