    Anissa Abi-Dargham is an expert in areas of molecular imaging, pharmacology, schizophrenia and addiction. Dr. Abi-Dargham employs the use of Positron Emission Tomography (PET) imaging to study the neurobiology of schizophrenia and mental illnesses.   We have used positron emission tomography and [11 C]raclopride to examine central D 2 dopamine receptor binding in 20 healthy subjects and 18 newly admitted, young, neuroleptic-naive patients with by:

    The International Symposium on Positron Emission Tomography of the Brain was held at Schloss Auel in Lohmar, near Cologne, FRG, on May 3rd to 8th, This isolated place was chosen to bring together and keep together people active in research employing PET. The partic­ ipants were asked to. Positron emission tomography is a diagnostic study of the physiological processes that are based on the detection of positron radiation being injected into a body. PET provides a unique opportunity to conduct an early diagnosis of cancer, neurological, and cardiovascular .

      Positron emission tomography (PET) scans are used to produce detailed 3-dimensional images of the inside of the body. The images can clearly show the part of the body being investigated, including any abnormal areas, and can highlight how well certain functions of the body are working.

The cannabinoid system constitutes a key entity throughout the human body. The cannabinoid type 1 receptor (CB 1 R), the prominent cannabinoid component in the brain, interacts significantly with the dopaminergic system and its role in reward.

CB 1 Rs have been implicated in “reward disorders” such as obesity and substance abuse, as well as in schizophrenia and mood disorders. Introduction. Schizophrenia remains one of the leading causes of global disease burden in adults despite over fifty years of drug development.

1 Understanding its neurobiology is critical for future rational drug discovery. 2, 3 The dopamine hypothesis of schizophrenia was first proposed over thirty years ago on the basis of indirect evidence.

It received support from studies of post-mortem Cited by: Breier A, Su TP, Saunders R, et al () Schizophrenia is associated with elevated amphetamine-induced synaptic dopaminergic concentration: evidence from a novel positron emission tomography method.

López-Ibor, I. María López-Ibor, Ricardo Montz. Single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) is becoming an increasingly important part of routine clinical nuclear medicine.

By providing tomographic reconstructions in multiple planes through the patient, SPECT expands the clinical applications in nuclear medicine as well as providing better contrast, edge definition and separation of target from background activities.

During the last two decades several brain imaging techniques have been introduced into psychiatric research allowing the study of various aspects of brain function and structure in relation to disease and treatment. Of these, positron emission tomography (PET) is the most by: Full Text Diagnostic performance of computer tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, and positron emission tomography or positron emission tomography/computer tomography for detection of metastatic lymph nodes in patients with cervical cancer: Meta‐analysis.

Positron emission tomography (PET) [1] is a nuclear medicine, functional imaging technique that produces a three-dimensional image of functional processes in the body. The system detects pairs of gamma rays emitted indirectly by a positron-emitting radionuclide (), which is introduced into the body on a biologically active -dimensional images of tracer concentration within the.

This book presents the latest scientific developments in the field of positron emission tomography (PET) dealing with data acquisition, image processing, applications, statistical analysis, tracer development, parameter estimation, and kinetic modeling.

It covers improved methodology and the application of existing techniques to new areas. The International Symposium on Positron Emission Tomography of the Brain was held at Schloss Auel in Lohmar, near Cologne, FRG, on May 3rd to 8th, This isolated place was chosen to bring together and keep together people active in research employing PET.

Brain imaging technologies such s positron emission tomography (PET), functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) offer opportunities to study the pathophysiology of psychotic disorders by evaluating brain function.

However, the use of anti-psychotic drugs may interfere with the results of such studies. A critical summary of the state of the art of PET technology and related disciplines (camera physics, radiochemistry, radiopharmacology, computerised brain atlases and databases, etc.), plus a survey of the most recent developments in the clinical and neuroscience applications of PET.

The.Schizophrenia: From Mind to Molecule presents a change in the scientific understanding and outlook regarding this devastating disorder. It provides a thorough look at schizophrenia that includes neurobehavioral studies, traditional and emerging technologies, psychosocial and medical treatments, and future research opportunities.

Abstract. Background: “Theory of mind” (TOM) refers to the ability to attribute mental states (ie, beliefs and goals) to one's self and others and to recognize that behaviors are guided by these mental capacity, critical for social competence, is impaired in schizophrenia.

We undertook a study of TOM in a group of patients with schizophrenia and healthy by:
