The FDG model and its application in clinical PET studies
The FDG method, as it is applied in clinical PET studies is reviewed. The influence of different implementations of the method and instrumental inaccuracies on the values of cerebral metabolic rate of glucose is discussed. For the comparison of the results between different groups standardized procedures are recommended.
