In order to clarify the relative contribution of hepatic metabolism to the short term disposition of methohexitone, we have measured hepatic blood flow during induction of anaesthesia with a 1.5-mg kg-1 i.v. bolus dose of methohexitone. Median hepatic clearance was 1.01 litre min-1 and hepatic extraction 87%. As a consequence of the high hepatic extraction,(More)

Positron emission tomography with deoxyglucose marked by fluorine-18 ( 18 F-FDG PET/CT) is a diagnostic tool to scan for tissue with high metabolism as present in infections.
