Imaging evolution of airway disorders in children


, : Imaging evolution of airway disorders in children. Radiologic Clinics of North America 43(2): 371-389

This article discusses and illustrates the insights gained from CT imaging of the lungs in infants and young children who do not have respiratory motion and at end-inspiratory and resting end-expiratory lung volumes using noninvasive controlled ventilation CT technique. The potential role of noninvasive controlled ventilation CT in developing quantitative measures of airway disease is highlighted and clinical examples demonstrating the use of the technique are shown.

Positron emission tomography (PET) studies have shown decreased glucose metabolism in brain regions of detoxified alcoholics and cocaine abusers. However, it is not clear whether this decrease is due to chronic drug abuse or a pre-existing conditi...

Postnatal overfeeding is a well-known model of early-life induced obesity and glucose intolerance in rats. However, little is known about its impact on insulin signaling in specific brain regions such as the mesocorticolimbic system, and its putat...
