Positron emission tomography measures of benzodiazepine binding in Alzheimer's disease.
TLDR
When measured in living patients, association cortical benzodiazepine binding sites are relatively preserved, suggesting structurally intact cortical neuropil underlying the glucose hypometabolism identified in Alzheimer's disease.
Uptake of 18-fluoro-2-deoxy-D-glucose by thyroid cancer: implications for diagnosis and therapy.
TLDR
A patient developed a pulmonary metastasis from papillary thyroid carcinoma that concentrated relatively little 131I, but sufficient 18F-fluoro-2-deoxy-D-glucose (FDG) to be quantified and imaged by positron emission tomography, so that studies with FDG may be a useful scintigraphic method for locating thyroid cancers when radioiodine imaging is unsatisfactory.
Sequential Positron Emission Tomographic Evaluations of Brain Metabolism in Acute Herpes Encephalitis
TLDR
When neuropsychiatric symptoms recurred in a previously healthy 61‐year‐old patient 1 month after recovering from acute HSV‐1 encephalitis, repeat positron emission tomography with fluorodeoxyglucose was helpful in ruling out recurrent active infection by showing marked hypometabolism throughout the previously infected temporal lobe.
Delayed Post-Hypoxic Leukoencephalopathy: Case Report with a Review of Disease Pathophysiology

  • 22 July 2013
TLDR
It is noted here that the mean lucid interval coincides approximately with the replacement half-life for myelin related lipids and proteins, which is about 19 days after the initial event.
Reduced F-18 fluorodeoxyglucose uptake within marrow after external beam radiation.
TLDR
Diminished metabolic activity within irradiated marrow can be revealed by F-18 FDG PET imaging techniques, and further correlative MRI PET studies are needed to determine if this postradiation phenomenon is related to fatty infiltration of the marrow cavity.
Identification of 17 Highly Expressed Genes within Mouse Lumbar Spinal Cord Anterior Horn Region from an In-Situ Hybridization Atlas of 3430 Genes: Implications for Motor Neuron Disease
  • M. Meyer
  • Medicine
    Neurology international
  • 22 April 2014
TLDR
Fibroblast Growth Factor 1 was found to have a particularly selective and intense localization pattern to the ventral horn and may be a good target for development of motor neuron disease therapies; further research is needed.
Seizure as the presenting sign for massive pulmonary embolism: Case report and review of the literature
TLDR
Clinicians need to be more aware that pulmonary embolism is important to consider within the differential diagnosis for unexplained new onset of seizure activity.
Amino Acid Sequences Mediating Vascular Cell Adhesion Molecule 1 Binding to Integrin Alpha 4: Homologous DSP Sequence Found for JC Polyoma VP1 Coat Protein
  • M. Meyer
  • Medicine, Biology
    Neurology international
  • 22 July 2013
TLDR
Three dimensional modeling of the JC polyoma viral coat protein VP1 suggests that the DSP loop has an accessible site for interaction from the external side of the assembled viral capsid pentamer.
Quantitative autoradiography with radiopharmaceuticals, Part 2: Applications in radiopharmaceutical research: concise communication.
TLDR
The use of dual-nuclide ARG permits each animal to be its own control, which greatly increases the utility of this method, andVariations in the response of film to increasing film-to-source distance are described, along with the effects of different intensifying screens and mounting tape.
Diffusely Increased Colonic F‐18 FDG Uptake in Acute Enterocolitis

  • 1 May 1995
TLDR
The study emphasizes the need to consider nonneoplastic entitles, such as enterocolitis, in the differential diagnosis of intensely hypermetabolic colonic lesions on F-18 FDG PET examinations.
