In the present study, the relationships between regional brain glucose metabolism and temperament have been investigated. Regional brain glucose metabolism was measured using [18F] fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography in 31 healthy subjects. Temperament was(More)

Computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and positron emission tomography (PET) provide complementary information for treatment planning in stereotactic radiosurgery. We evaluated the localization accuracy of MRI and PET compared with CT. Two kinds of phantoms applicable to the Leksell G stereotactic skull frame (Elekta, Tokyo) were(More)
