Abstract

Positron emission tomography (PET) allows noninvasive studies of different metabolic pathways in man in a unique way. Human biochemistry can now be studied using physiological tracers like glucose or oxygen. Promising investigations are now underway with various neurotransmitters. This workshop discussed problems related to the study of receptors and energy metabolism, particularly in connection with compartmental analysis and modelling of the data. Until now these studies have been confined to the brain and heart. Oncology is now a growing field of interest.
