I don't think that they understand the results of the SPECT scan, they just know that there's something unusual or abnormal about it. Functional brain imaging is still pretty new, and our understanding of it and how to interpret the results is limited.

After I had a normal EEG and MRI (both of which I had already had several times in the past with no abnormal results). SPECT measures blood flow to different parts of the brain. I believe that mine showed increased blood flow in the area of my thalamus.
