  • Abstract. We analyzed muscular activity of the lower extremities during level walking using positron emission tomography (PET) with 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose (18F-FDG). We examined 17 healthy male subjects; 11 were assigned to a walking group and 6 to a resting group. After 18F-FDG injection, the walking group subjects walked at a free speed for 15 min. A whole-body image was then obtained by a PET camera, and the standardized uptake ratio (SUR) was computed for each muscle. The SUR for each… CONTINUE READING
