Dynamic PET (Positron Emission Tomography) involving a number of radiotracers is an established technique for in vivo estimation of biochemical parameters in human brain, such as the overall metabolic rate and certain receptor concentrations or enzyme activities. 11C labeled methyl-4-piperidyl acetate (MP4A) and -propionate (MP4P) are established radiotracers for measuring activity of acetylcholine esterase (AChE), which relates to functionality of the cholinergic system. MP4A kinetic analysis… CONTINUE READING
