OBJECTIVE Analyzing changes in regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF) with SPECT in complex regional pain syndrome type 1 (CRPS 1), formerly known as reflex sympathetic dystrophy, is an optimal method for evaluating effective pain relief. We attempted to investigate the correlation of changes in rCBF with pain relief during treatments of sympathetic blockade(More)
This study tests the hypothesis that depression in patients with Alzheimer's disease (AD) is due to a specific pathogenesis rather than a reactive phenomenon. Forty-three AD patients received a psychiatrist's interview, neuropsychological assessments, and a 99mTc-hexamethyl propyleneamine oxime single photon emission computed tomography (HMPAO-SPECT).(More)
Brain perfusion in 20 patients with mild Alzheimer's disease (AD), 20 patients with moderate AD and 20 control subjects (matched for age, gender and education) were assessed by single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) using technetium-99m hexamethylpropylene amine oxime ((99m)Tc-HMPAO). SPECT images were transformed to a standard size and shape(More)
Few studies have investigated gender differences in dietary intake. The objective of this cross-sectional study was to examine gender differences in dietary patterns and their association with the prevalence of metabolic syndrome. The food intakes of 3794 subjects enrolled by a two-stage cluster stratified sampling method were collected using a valid(More)

METHODS A cross-sectional study was conducted from July 2013 to December 2013, and 4319 workers were recruited from more than 200,000 coal mine employees who are exposed to continuous potential risk of(More)
Thymic epithelial cells (TECs) form a 3-dimentional network supporting thymocyte development and maturation. Besides epithelium and thymocytes, heterogeneous fibroblasts are essential components in maintaining thymic microenvironments. However, thymic fibroblast characteristics, development and function remain to be determined. We herein found that thymic(More)
Objective: Using statistical parametric mapping on [ 18 F]FDOPA PET image analysis to examine the difference of dopaminergic metabolism between Parkinson's disease (PD) and olivopontine cerebellar atrophy (OPCA). females) were studied. Images from each [ 18 F]FDOPA scan were under statistical comparison on a voxel by voxel basis between two groups using(More)
