Evaluation of one dimensional profile scans with a whole body counter--82bromide space in liver cirrhosis: concise communication

European Journal of Nuclear Medicine
O SchoberF W Schmidt

Abstract

One dimensional profile scans with a whole body counter are refocused with a linear space invariant filter in the frequency domain, 'Hanning' window and inverse system transfer function. Artifacts are eliminated in a way that a clinically applicable method is developed. Topographic information is achieved with the highly energetic nuclide 82bromide. The bromide space (extracellular volume) in patients with liver cirrhosis (n = 9) compared to normal subjects (n = 10) is increased most in the upper abdominal thoracic region.

COVID-19

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Alzheimer's Disease: MS4A

Variants within the membrane-spanning 4-domains subfamily A (MS4A) gene cluster have recently been implicated in Alzheimer's disease in genome-wide association studies. Here is the latest research on Alzheimer's disease and MS4A.
