Dear Ben,

ADHD cannot be diagnosed through any scan. There are a number of theories surrounding the cause of ADHD, although to date no single cause has been found - it is usually a combination of environmental ad physical factors.

Please contact ADHASA at www.adhasa.co.za or (011) 888 7655 for a psychologist or psychiatrist in your area who has vast experience with ADHD; they will be able to make a diagnosis and help you develop a treatment plan should you be diagnosed with ADHD.

Kind regards,
Delia
