Complementarity of magnetic resonance spectroscopy, positron emission tomography and single photon emission tomography for the in vivo investigation of human cardiac metabolism and neurotransmission

The three techniques allowing the noninvasive study of cardiac metabolism, namely magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS), positron emission tomography (PET) and single photon emission computed tomography (SPET), all use external detection with stable or radioactive isotopes. These techniques yield different information. PET is quantitative and very sensitive… CONTINUE READING
