Correlations between body size development during childhood and brown adipose tissue activity in adulthood
BACKGROUND Brown adipose tissue (BAT) activity decreases by age and in adulthood BAT activity has been associated with low obesity and high insulin sensitivity in adulthood in positron-emission tomography studies. Little ...
Prognostic value of global and regional myocardial blood flow assessed by 15O-water positron emission tomography in patients with suspected coronary disease
Coronary computed tomography angiography (CCTA) combined with positron emission tomography (PET) myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI) using 15O-water is an effective non-invasive method to detect or exclude obstructive ...
Brown adipose tissue triglyceride content association with brain grey matter volumes
Besides generating heat brown adipose tissue has been shown to have connections to metabolism and the amount of BAT is correlated to many obesity related factors such as body mass index. According to previous studies weight ...
Seasonal variation of metabolic activity in visceral, subcutaneous and brown adipose tissues: a positron emission tomography study
Glucose metabolism in human brown adipose tissue (BAT) varies by season due to the activating effects of cold acclimation on BAT nonshivering thermogenesis. Elevated metabolic activity in BAT may affect systemic metabolic ...
