The Positron Medical Center has developed a large number of radiopharmaceuticals and 36 radiopharmaceuticals have been approved for clinical use for studying aging and geriatric diseases, especially brain functions. Positron emission tomography (PET) has been used to provide a highly advanced PET-based diagnosis. The current status of the development of(More)
The increasing use of mobile phones has aroused public concern regarding the potential health risks of radiofrequency (RF) fields. We investigated the effects of exposure to RF fields (2.45 GHz, continuous wave) at specific absorption rate (SAR) of 1, 5, and 10 W/kg for 1, 4, and 24 h on gene expression in a normal human glial cell line, SVGp12, using DNA(More)
To examine the biological effects of radio frequency (RF) electromagnetic fields in vitro, we have examined the fundamental cellular responses, such as cell growth, survival, and cell cycle distribution, following exposure to a wide range of specific absorption rates (SAR). Furthermore, we compared the effects of continuous and intermittent exposure at high(More)
The present study provides an intercomparison of the induced quantities in a human model for uniform magnetic field exposures at extremely low frequency. A total of six research groups have cooperated in this joint intercomparison study. The computational conditions and numeric human phantom including the conductivity of tissue were set identically to focus(More)
This study examined whether 2450 MHz continuous wave high frequency electromagnetic fields (HFEMF) could induce cancer-like changes in mouse C3H10T1/2 cells, and whether HFEMF could initiate malignant or synergistic transformation. Transformed foci, Type II and Type III, were independently counted as the experiment endpoint. The cells were exposed to HFEMF(More)
In this study, we investigated gray matter density in essential blepharospasm (EB) patients, focusing on the duration of disease and severity of symptoms. We studied 32 patients (10 males and 22 females; age, 55.0 ± 6.5years) with EB and 48 controls (15 males and 33 females; age, 54.4 ± 10.3years) by using 3D T1-weighted magnetic resonance imaging and(More)
To localize regional alterations in cerebral glucose metabolism in essential blepharospasm (EB) patients with photophobia. We have studied 22 EB patients by performing positron emission tomography and [(18)F]-fluorodeoxyglucose analysis. The patients were classified into two subgroups, namely, EB with photophobia (P group) and EB without photophobia (NP(More)
Positron emission tomography (PET), the blood flow response in the primary visual cortex (V1) to two visual stimuli, low temporal frequency (6 Hz) to activate the parvocellular system, and high temporal frequency (25 Hz) to activate the magnocellular system were used to investigate pathophysiologic mechanism of amblyopia. Five women and one man who were(More)
Dystonia is an involuntary movement disorder dominated by sustained muscle contractions that frequently cause twisting, repetitive movements, and postural changes. The purpose of this study was to determine the mechanism causing dystonia. We therefore employed a rat model of dystonia, which was induced by injecting (-)-bicuculine methiodide (BM), a(More)
We evaluated optic radiation (OR) damage in patients with glaucoma by using fractional anisotropy (FA) of diffusion-tensor magnetic resonance imaging. We studied 29 patients with glaucoma and 19 healthy controls. Regions of interest were placed over the bilateral anterior and posterior ORs on the FA maps, and the FA value of each region was measured. FA(More)
