A general method for estimating the precision of parameters resulting from the use of various experimental designs (rate of injection and rate of tomographic data collection) in emission tomography studies is proposed. The sensitivity matrix of the study model and an estimate of the statistical uncertainty of the tomographic data are used to compute the(More)
We performed dynamic positron emission tomographic (PET) studies of glucose utilization, using (18F) 2-fluoro-2-deoxy-D-glucose (FDG), in patients with probable Alzheimer's disease (AD) and healthy age-matched controls, to evaluate blood-brain-barrier glucose transport and glucose utilization rates in the disease. We found no significant differences in rate(More)
The in vivo high-energy phosphorus metabolic profile and pH of an experimental intracerebral C6 glioma in rats was examined using surface coil 31P NMR spectroscopy. Initially, phosphorus-containing metabolites of the glioma were characterized by in vivo 31P surface coil spectroscopy of subcutaneously implanted tumors and by high-resolution NMR studies of(More)
BACKGROUND Implementing complex nutrition and other public health projects and tracking nutrition interventions, such as women's diet and supplementation and infant and young child feeding practices, requires reliable routine data to identify potential program gaps and to monitor trends in behaviors in real time. However, current monitoring and evaluation(More)
