    I'm afraid such a scan does not exist. Asperger Syndrome is a form of autism. It means therefore this is a functional problem. There is no anatomical brain abnormality to be detected by a scan. When a child shows the telltale clinical features of possible autism (of any kind), a lot of tests including a CT or MR scan of the brain may be done as a way of EXCLUDING other conditions. In Asperger syndrome, those scans will be normal.

    Actually, akanga is wrong.  He needs to read my hub about it.
    The tests are being done here in the UK and is pioneering in the field of asd.  If you need to know more information about this, I would suggest that you go directly to the source: the institute of psychiatry at Kings College, London.  This will be a good start.
    Remember that this is very new!
