- 18F-florbetaben AÎ² imaging in mild cognitive impairment. Ong, Kevin; Villemagne, Victor L.; Bahar-Fuchs, Alex; Lamb, Fiona; Chételat, Gaël; Raniga, Parnesh; Mulligan, Rachel S.; Salvado, Olivier; Putz, Barbara; Roth, Katrin; Masters, Colin L.; Reininger, Cornelia B.; Rowe, Christopher C. // Alzheimer's Research & Therapy;2013, Vol. 5 Issue 1, p1
Introduction: 18F-florbetaben and positron emission tomography were used to examine the relationships between Î²-amyloid (AÎ²) deposition, cognition, hippocampal volume, and white matter hyperintensities in mild cognitive impairment (MCI). Methods: Forty-five MCI participants were evaluated....

The article discusses the importance of hybrid imaging in the in the future of medical diagnostics. The author examines the impact of the technology on medical practice and the conflict among medical practitioners in operating positron emission tomography (PET)-computed tomography (CT). It...
- Positron emission tomography versus positron emission tomography/computed tomography: from “unclear” to “new-clear” medicine. von Schulthess, Gustav K. // Molecular Imaging & Biology;Jul2004, Vol. 6 Issue 4, p183
PET/CT is a new diagnostic imaging modality, which proves that adding PET and CT is not merely additive, but highly synergistic. While PET provides high sensitivity for lesion detection, CT provides the anatomic backdrop, which frequently is important in order to make a specific diagnosis. CT...

- Neuroimaging Techniques as a New Tool to Study the Neural Correlates Involved in Human Male Sexual Arousal. Mouras, Harold // Current Medical Imaging Reviews;2006, Vol. 2 Issue 1, p71
During the last five years, neuroimaging techniques such as Positron Emission Tomography (PET) and functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) appeared as new tools to study the neural correlates of human male sexual arousal (SA). In this paper, some of the main methodological aspects of these...
- Contributions of Functional Neuroimaging to Clinical and Cognitive Neuropsychology: A Selective Review. Chokron, Sylvie // Current Medical Imaging Reviews;2006, Vol. 2 Issue 1, p59
Functional neuroimaging has provided a new view of the activity in the human cortex. The understanding of the relationship between functional signals, particularly functional MRI, clinical disorders and cognitive functions has increased. This article reviews selected contributions of positron...
