Simultaneous Intracerebral Microdialysis and Positron Emission Tomography in the Detection of Ischemia in Patients with Subarachnoid Hemorrhage
Intracerebral microdialysis (MD) was applied in patients with subarachnoid hemorrhage. The regional CBF, the CMRO2, and oxygen extraction ratio (OER) were measured with simultaneous positron emissionExpand
