Mental stress causes a substantial sympathetic response, thus increasing myocardial blood flow (MBF). However, the effects of mental stress on global CBF have not been elucidated. In this study, changes in CBF and MBF in relation to mental stress were measured by a dual positron emission tomography system that can measure CBF and MBF simultaneously. CBF and… CONTINUE READING
