1,464 top medical experts on Positron-Emission Tomography across 50 countries and 41 U.S. states, including 1,361 MDs (Physicians). This is based on an objective analysis of their Scientific Publications, Clinical Trials, Medicare, and NIH Grants.
- Positron-Emission Tomography: An imaging technique using compounds labelled with short-lived positron-emitting radionuclides (such as carbon-11, nitrogen-13, oxygen-15 and fluorine-18) to measure cell metabolism. It has been useful in study of soft tissues such as cancer; cardiovascular system; and brain. single-photon emission-computed tomography is closely related to positron emission tomography, but uses isotopes with longer half-lives and resolution is lower.
- Clinical guidelines are the recommended starting point to understand initial steps and current protocols in any disease or procedure:
