Positron Emission Tomography: Brain

Positron Emission Tomography (PET) is a type of imaging that allows visualization of the brain functioning. A radioactive tracer is injected into the bloodstream allowing the activity of the organ to be visualized. PET imaging for the brain is useful to see if there is disease or injury in the brain. Here is the latest research on PET and the brain.
