SPECT and MRIs are not diagnostically useful yet. I believe they will be in the future. As to the effectiveness of ECT, it is, as I understand it, statistically better than any other treatment for depression. Remember, a lot of the people who post on PB are discussing failed treatments.

Waiting for the days of better diagnostics for mental illness,

Britt

BTW I've never had ECT but would not hesitate to if it was indicated.
