Highly luminous rapid flares are characteristic of processes around compact objects like white dwarfs, neutron stars and black holes. In the high-energy regime of X-rays and gamma-rays, outbursts with variabilities on timescales of seconds or less are routinely observed, for example in gamma-ray bursts or soft gamma-ray repeaters. At optical wavelengths,(More)
BACKGROUND The objective of this study was to semiquantitatively assess the degree of myocardial fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) uptake in glucose-loaded myocardial viability positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) scans, to calculate the myocardial to background index, and correlate the index with image quality assessed on the basis of visual(More)
PURPOSE The purpose was to evaluate quality of 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography (18F-FDG-PET) myocardial scans and its correlation with background glucose (BG) after simplified 5% intravenous glucose load protocol. METHODS An intravenous glucose load protocol was applied in 69 normoglycemic patients with confirmed coronary artery(More)
