Does spect scan or pet scan always diagnosis drugs neurotoxicity to the brain ?

I am not an expert on neuroimaging; however I think that you use the scans to determine the neuro physiologic process much more than neuro toxicity. There may be different physiologic patterns due to neurotoxicity however I would leave that to the experts.
