      PET is one of the most important techniques for measuring blood flow or energy consumption in the brain. This method of measuring brain function is based on the detection of radioactivity emitted when positrons, positively charged particles, undergo radioactive decay in the brain.

      Computed Tomography. Tomography refers to imaging by sections. Computed tomography (CT) is a noninvasive imaging technique that uses computers to analyze several cross-sectional X-rays in order to reveal minute details about structures in the body (Figure \(\PageIndex{2.a}\)).The technique was invented in the s and is based on the principle .

    BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: We can easily recognize familiar music by listening to only one or 2 of its opening bars, but the brain regions that participate in this cognitive processing remain undetermined. We used positron-emission tomography (PET) to study changes in regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF) that occur during listening to familiar music. An older neuroimaging technique that uses X-rays to construct a precise three-dimensional image of the brain's anatomy. Positron Emission Tomography (PET scan) An older neuroimaging technique that uses a tracer substance such as glucose to scan radioactivity, allowing us to determine which tissues are using more of the glucose.

Based on these studies and the sensitivity increase available with three-dimensional data acquisition, the question arises whether activation-induced cerebral blood flow changes can be detected in brain tissue adjacent to gliomas in.

It was this approach to a functional assessment of brain activity that has supported advances in the areas of functional MR, magnetic source imaging (MSI), and SPECT. The positron emitting radioisotopes all have different half-lives but the same energy as twin keV annihilation photons is produced.

Brain Connectivity is an international neuroscience journal dedicated to the publication of innovative research, scientific reviews, and academic communications pertaining to all aspects of anatomical, functional, and causal connections between distinct units within the central nervous system.

Brain Connectivity coverage includes. Advances in neuroimaging using PET and. CT scans use a series of X-ray beams passed through the head. The images are then developed on sensitive film. This method creates cross-sectional images of the brain and shows the structure of the brain, but not its function.

Positron Emission Tomography (PET) Image courtesy of the National Institute on Drug Abuse. Positron Emission Tomography. Positron emission tomography (PET) is a medical imaging technique involving the use of so-called radiopharmaceuticals, substances that emit radiation that is short-lived and therefore relatively safe to administer to the body.

Although the first PET scanner was introduced init took 15 more years before. Positron Emission Tomography (PET) Positron emission tomography (PET) scans measure levels of the sugar glucose in the brain in order to illustrate where neural firing is taking place.

This works because active neurons use glucose as fuel. As part of the scan, a tracer substance attached to radioactive isotopes is injected into the blood.
