Most research with 31P-magnetic resonance spectroscopy (31P-MRS) in affective disorders has been done in the field of bipolar disturbances. Reduced frontal and temporal lobe phosphomonoester (PME) concentrations were measured in the euthymic state, whereas increased values were found in the depressed state. In bipolar-II patients reduced phosphocreatine(More)
Pettegrew et al (Arch Gen Psychiatry 48:563-568, 1991) were the first to determine abnormalities concerning phospholipids and high energy metabolites in the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex of drug-naive schizophrenics with 31P magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS). Other investigations could not replicate these findings. We included in our study 13(More)
Two implant materials, titanium and tantalum, were investigated for their electron emission in response to therapeutic tumor irradiation and were compared, in this context, to a substance equivalent to bone. The reaction of titanium was found to be similar to that of bone, whereas substantive increase in radiation was caused by tantalum which, consequently,(More)
