First-pass angiography in mice using FDG-PET: a simple method of deriving the cardiovascular transit time without the need of region-of-interest drawing

Abstract

In this study, we developed a simple and robust semi-automatic method to measure the right ventricle to left ventricle (RV-to-LV) transit time (TT) in mice using 2-[/sup 18/F]fluoro-2-deoxy-D-glucose (FDG) positron emission tomography (PET). The accuracy of the method was first evaluated using a 4-D digital dynamic mouse phantom. The RV-to-LV TTs of twenty… (More)
