The present positron emission tomography study used 2-deoxy-2[18F]fluoro-D-glucose to examine age-related changes in local cerebral metabolic rates for glucose (LCMRglc) in sedated rhesus macaques and vervet monkeys. Nineteen vervet monkeys were scanned in a cross-sectional design, which consisted of three age groups (birth to 59 d, 60-179 d, 180 d to(More)
Noise components on PET images were studied. The results showed that the square of synthetic noise Delta(2) and the square of signal-to-noise ratio (N/Delta)(2) varied with the signal intensity N and the relationships were respectively expressed with: Delta(2)=0.0395N(2)+0.1427N+0.0025 (R(2)=0.9358) and (N/Delta)(2)=-1.13932N(2)+7.0185N-0.0746(More)
Structures were obtained from images with morphological characteristics to register with voxel-based method. We applied simple morphological operations to obtain human brain cortex and chose normalized mutual information as similarity measure for the geometric alignment of PET and MR images. Evaluation used nine patients, and the results showed that(More)
