The use of anatomical information to improve the quality of reconstructed images in positron emission tomography (PET) has been extensively studied. A common strategy has been to include spatial smoothing within boundaries defined from the anatomical data. We present an alternative method for the incorporation of anatomical information into PET image(More)
The substantia nigra and globus pallidus (two iron-rich brain areas) receive a substantial innervation from the neostriatum, a considerable amount of which is GABAergic. Because of this anatomic relationship and the finding that prevention of GABA degradation in these two areas decreases their histochemical levels of iron, GABAergic transmission/metabolism(More)
