Whole body hyperthermia may produce vasodialation, nausea, and altered cognitive function. Animal research has identified brain regions that have important roles in thermoregulation. However, differences in both the cognitive and sweating abilities of humans and animals implicate the need for human research. Positron emission tomography (PET) was used to(More)
The purpose of this work was to determine the feasibility of using positron emitting isotopes that emit prompt gammas to acquire quantitative positron emission tomography (PET) data using standard PET instrumentation. Prompt gammas can contaminate PET data by increasing dead time, converting singles into invalid coincidences, and producing multiple(More)
