[17F] Fluoromethane PET Imaging of Regional Cerebral Blood Flow in Rhesus During Amphetamine Challenge
Physics and Astronomy
To obtain absolute measures of regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF) using the inert diffusible tracer fluoromethane (CH3F) labeled with 17F (t1/2 = 65 s) and to better understand the effects of amphetamine in the brain, we imaged nonhuman primates by PET.
