Dynamic 13N-ammonia PET: a new imaging method to diagnose hypopituitarism

, : Dynamic 13N-ammonia PET: a new imaging method to diagnose hypopituitarism. Journal of Nuclear Medicine 46(1): 44-47

We have developed a new imaging method to evaluate the blood perfusion and ammonia metabolism of the pituitary gland, and we preliminarily assessed its role in the diagnosis of hy-popituitarism. Methods: Six female healthy volunteers (age range, 20-46 y) and 6 female patients (age range, 23-42 y) were enrolled in this study. Dynamic13 N-NH3 PET was performed.

Background: Real-time PCR techniques are being widely used for nucleic acids analysis, but one limitation of current frequently employed real-time PCR is the high cost of the labeled probe for each target molecule.Results: We describe a real-time...
