Imaging techniques review in Journal of Applied Physiology

DMRG member Dr Tineke van de Weijer is the first author of a review published in the Journal of Applied Physiology, ‘Mini-Review on Cardiac Metabolic Imaging: current imaging modalities and future perspectives’. The review discusses a range of non-invasive imaging techniques allowing a detailed investigation of cardiac metabolism in health and disease, including Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy (MRS) techniques for determination of metabolite content (triglycerides, glucose, ATP, phosphocreatine and so on), MRI (for myocardial perfusion) Single Photon Emession Computed Tomography (SPECT) and Positron Emission Tomography (PET) for quantitation of perfusion and substrate uptake.
