UNLABELLED Injecting drug use (IDU) is a major risk factor for contracting HIV-1 infection. Both HIV and IDU are neurotoxic, and their coexistence may lead to increased dysfunction of brain metabolic processes. The objective of this research was to investigate the effects of HIV-1 infection and IDU on (18)F-FDG PET brain metabolism. METHODS (18)F-FDG PET… (More)
The beam-spin asymmetries in the hard exclusive electroproduction of photons on the proton (e p-->epgamma) were measured over a wide kinematic range and with high statistical accuracy. These asymmetries result from the interference of the Bethe-Heitler process and of deeply virtual Compton scattering. Over the whole kinematic range (x(B) from 0.11 to 0.58,… (More)
Impact of reduced k-space acquisition on pathologic detectability for volumetric MR spectroscopic imaging. imaging of basal ganglia and thalamus in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. utility of magnetic resonance spectroscopy to enhance diagnosis of HIV-associated mild neurocognitive disorder.
There is increasing interest in the use of two-dimensional J-resolved spectroscopic acquisition (multiecho) methods for in vivo proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy due to the improved discrimination of overlapping J-coupled multiplet resonances that is provided. Of particular interest is the potential for discrimination of the overlapping resonances of… (More)
