Positron Emission Tomography in Dementia
John Wiley & Sons, 1990 - Medical - 187 pages
Here is an up-to-date work that offers a full review of the relatively exclusive diagnostic tool--positron emission tomography--for studying dementing diseases. It describes, in easy-to-understand language, exactly how PET works, how to use it and analyze data, and what interpretations and conclusions can be drawn from this information. Includes comprehensive discussions on the application of PET for studying Alzheimer's Disease, Huntington's Disease, neuroreceptor changes in dementia, multi-infarct dementia and affinity and neurotransmitter concentrations.
