Using multitracer positron emission tomography, I investigated regional hemodynamic and metabolic changes in both perifocal and remote tissues of cerebral angiomas, with special reference to steal phenomena.. In 22 patients (14 with arteriovenous malformations and eight with cavernomas) cerebral blood flow, cerebral blood volume, mean vascular transit time, cerebral metabolic rate for oxygen, oxygen extraction fraction, cerebral metabolic rate for glucose, and glucose extraction fraction were measured using standard positron emission tomographic methods. Twelve patients also had their cerebral glucose metabolism assessed during psychophysical activation. Regions of interest representing the angioma, perifocal and remote tissues, contralateral mirror regions, and standard brain regions were analyzed.. There were no significant changes in hemodynamic variables or oxygen metabolism in the ipsilateral cerebral hemisphere, but ipsilateral glucose metabolism was reduced both at rest (p less than 0.01) ...

phdthesis{778462a2-a224-4f3d-9916-1149b935ebdb, abstract = {Positron emission tomography (PET) is a tracer technique used for quantitative in vivo studies of physiological and biochemical processes. Because of the use of positron-emitting radionuclides such as 11-C, 13-N, 15-O and 18-F, which are isotopes of the biologically ubiquitous elements, it is possible to label radiopharmaceuticals which trace biochemical processes precisely. In order to be able to utilize these useful positron-emitting radiopharmaceuticals without state-of-the-art PET systems, it is interesting to develop alternatives to standard commercial PET facilities.,br/,,br, ,br/,,br, Two different types of nuclear physics research accelerators have been used for the production of [18-F]fluoride, and the isotope produced has been used for radiolabelling of 2-[18F]fluoro-2-deoxy-D-glucose (2-18FDG).

The neuromodulatory effect of manipulating monoaminergic receptor function was assessed by combining a psychological and a pharmacological activation during repeated positron emission tomographic (PET) scans. The effects of buspirone (a 5-HT1A receptor partial agonist) on changes in regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF) associated with free word recall were examined. A factorial design was used to demonstrate a significant interaction (changes in rCBF brought about by psychological activation which depend on drug administration) in the left parahippocampal region. This interaction was an attenuation of increases in local neuronal activity (rCBF) related to memory function. Buspirone-induced decreases in rCBF, independent of the memory effect, were seen in the left prefrontal and parietal cortices. We suggest that combined psychological and pharmacological activation is a way of measuring direct (main) drug effects and modulatory effects on neurotransmission associated with cognitive functions (interaction

Previous neuroimaging studies have employed symptom provocation paradigms to examine the functional neuroanatomic correlates of emotions or behaviors that characterize particular psychiatric disorders. This study was designed to determine areas of differential brain activity associated with the hallmark food aversion of anorexia nervosa (AN). We hypothesized that this feature of AN would be associated with dysfunction within the paralimbic system. The tracer, oxygen 15-labeled carbon dioxide, was used to make positron emission tomographic measurements of regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF). We compared 8 young women with AN to 8 medically/psychiatrically healthy female control subjects during both a neutral and provoked state. Presentation of standardized neutral, low-caloric food stimuli (apple, lettuce) was followed by viewing of provocative, high-caloric food stimuli (cake, bagel + cream cheese). Heart rate was monitored by pulse oximetry and subjects completed emotional state analog scales ...

Positron emission tomography (PET) with F-18 fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) is improving the diagnosis, staging and treatment monitoring of a variety of cancers in comparison to alternative noninvasive imaging modalities. However, detection of small lesions is limited by image resolution and low signal to noise ratio. While computer-aided detection algorithms based on static PET may assist visual detection of lesions, the temporal domain information loss in the static image could impair the detection of lesions. In addition, spatial features such as the shape and contrast of a lesion in static PET images are highly variable and difficult to characterize. Since the dynamics of tracer uptake (tracer radioactivity) are different for normal and malignant tissue, the temporal domain provides potentially important additional features for use in lesion detection.; This dissertation focuses on three challenges in the detection of lesions in dynamic PET: feature extraction, detector design and thresholding ...

OBJECTIVE: The serotonin transporter (5-HTT) is a key target for selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors and may be involved in the pathophysiology of major depression. It is now possible to image 5-HTT directly in the human brain, but results from studies of acutely depressed patients have been inconsistent. The purpose of this study was to determine whether abnormalities in 5-HTT might be present in recovered depressed patients. METHOD: The authors measured the binding potential of 5-HTT using [11C]DASB in conjunction with positron emission tomography (PET) in 24 medication-free, recovered depressed male patients and 20 healthy male comparison subjects. The regional estimates of binding potential were obtained using a metabolite-corrected plasma input function method followed by Logan analysis, with the cerebellum as a reference region. RESULTS: The authors found no significant difference in the binding potential of [11C]DASB between the recovered depressed patients and healthy comparison subjects in

October 31, 2011 - The Breast journal published new data from a prospective study conducted at the Seoul National University College of Medicine in Korea that shows positron emission mammography (PEM) has a higher sensitivity for tumor detection compared with whole-body positron emission tomography (PET)/ computed tomography (CT) when using both visual as well as quantitative analysis. These results were particularly striking and significant for smaller-sized tumors (less than 2 cm), likely due to the improved spatial resolution offered by PEM. This demonstrates PEMs clinical utility in being able to more effectively diagnosis early stage cancer.. According to recent journal articles, the sensitivity of PET/CT is limited, especially for low-grade and small tumors. Most PET/CT scanners currently provide a spatial resolution at 5 mm or greater, thus limiting PET/CTs ability to depict small-sized tumors such as invasive lobular carcinoma or ductal carcinoma in situ. This study provides a direct ...
A very simple and low-cost brain dedicated, rapidly rotating Single Photon Emission Tomograph SPECT is described. Its use in following patients with ischemic stroke is illustrated by two middle cerebral artery occlusion cases, one with persistent occlusion and low CBF in MCA territory, and one with early lysis of the occlusion having high CBF (massive luxury perfusion) for some weeks. Evidence of this kind may be essential in the evaluation of therapeutic measures in ischemic stroke. ...
The concept of positron emission tomography (PET) imaging revolves around the measurement of a patients in vivo radiotracer distribution. The system detects pairs of gamma rays emitted indirectly by a positron-emitting radionuclide (tracer), which is introduced into the body via biologically active molecules. As such, PET imaging can be described via a line-integral model of acquisition [1]. PET data are collected as projections in sinograms or listmode format [2]. The raw data collected by a PET scanner are a list of coincidence events representing near-simultaneous detection, each coincidence event represents a line in space connecting the two detectors along which the positron emission occurred. While one can employ the inverse Radon transform to recover tomograms from acquired PET data, such an approach can be unstable, particularly when dealing with noise-contaminated data [3]. Therefore, the filtered back projection algorithm, which is a stabilized and discretized version of the inverse ...
For thousands of years, we, as humans, have sought to understand the mechanisms responsible for neural activity (Walsh, 1978). As long ago as 10,000 B.C., craniotomies are known to have been performed. In the 1500s, Vesalius published the first anatomic drawings of the brain after an unprecedented observation and dissection of the brain. In the 19th century, lesion studies introduced the lesion/deficit hypothesis of neural functioning, which subsequently led to much of the current functional neuroanatomical terminology (e.g., Brocas and Wernickes areas). Through the last few decades of what may be considered modern neural research, a "greater interest in the cognitive correlates of structural and functional brain lesions" has led to the development of todays technology for imaging the nervous system (Mega, 1999, p. 41 ...
Viewing of single words produces a cognitively complex mental state in which anticipation, emotional responses, visual perceptual analysis, and activation of orthographic representations are all occurring. Previous PET studies have produced conflicting results, perhaps due to the conflation of these separate processes or the presence of subtle differences in stimulus material and methodology. A PET study of 10 normal individuals was carried out using the bolus H215O intravenous injection technique to examine components of processing of passively viewed words. Subjects viewed blocks of random-letter strings or abstract, concrete, or emotional words (words with positive or negative emotional salience). Baseline conditions were either passive viewing of plus signs or an anticipatory state (viewing plus signs after being warned to expect words or random letters to appear imminently). All words (and to a lesser extent the random letters) produced robust activation of cerebral blood flow in the left ...

OBJECTIVES: To assess the accuracy of 68Gallium-prostate-specific membrane antigen (68Ga-PSMA) positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) for lymph node (LN) staging in intermediate- and high-risk prostate cancer (PCa). MATERIALS AND METHODS: From April to October 2015, 30 patients with intermediate- (n = 3) or high-risk (n = 27) PCa were prospectively enrolled. Patients underwent preoperative 68Ga-PSMA PET/CT. Both visual and semi-quantitative analyses were undertaken. Subsequently, all patients underwent radical prostatectomy (RP) with an extended pelvic lymph node dissection. The sensitivity, specificity, and positive (PPV) and negative predictive value (NPV) for LN status of 68Ga-PSMA were calculated using histopathology as reference. RESULTS: Eleven patients (37%) had lymph node metastases (LNMs); 26 LNMs were identified in the 11 patients. Patient analysis showed that 68Ga-PSMA PET/CT had a sensitivity of 64% for the detection of LNMs, its specificity was 95%, the PPV was 88%, and

Its not always easy to identify exactly why you feel moody. But now scientists say they have pinpointed a specific part of the brain associated with negative feelings. According to a study published online today by the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, activity in a small area near the front of the brain correlates with feelings of distress, irritability, anxiety and anger. David H. Zald of Vanderbilt University and his colleagues used positron emission tomography (PET) to track blood flow in the brains of 89 men and women. Before the scans, subjects filled out questionnaires describing the extent to which they had experienced disagreeable moods in the previous month. The scientists then used the responses to rate the participants using a negative affect scale, which describes unpleasant mood states. Previous research had shown that individuals who rate highly on the scale are at increased risk of developing depression or anxiety disorders. The researchers determined a positive ...

Duration information about a visual stimulus requires processing as do other visual features such as size or intensity. Using positron emission tomography, iterative (H2O)-O-15 infusions, and statistical parametric mapping, we investigated the neural correlates of time processing. Nine normal subjects underwent six serial rCBF. Three tasks were studied: (a) Atemporal generalization task (D task) in which the subjects had to judge (by pressing one of two keys) whether the duration of the illumination of a green LED was equal to or different from that of a previously presented standard; (b) An intensity generalization task. (I task) in which the judgment concerned the intensity of the LED; and (c) A control task (C task) in which the subjects ...
