Understanding of cerebral energy metabolism by dynamic living brain slice imaging system with [18F]FDG.


Recently, lactate has been receiving great attention as an energy substrate in the brain. In this study, the role of lactate was evaluated by "bioradiography" system with 2-deoxy-2-[(18)F]fluoro-d-glucose ([(18)F]FDG), which is a positron emitting radiotracer for glucose uptake quantification. "Bioradiography" is the dynamic living tissue slice imaging… (More)
