( 24 , 25 ). Imaging of the glucose analog 18 F-labeled fluorodeoxyglucose ( 18 FDG) by positron emission tomography (PET) is the gold standard for the assessment of cerebral glucose metabolism in vivo . In this manuscript, we review evidence on

-based strategies, for example, 68 Ga-SSA-PET/CT, has proved of considerable value ( 21 ); however, limited spatial resolution (6–8 mm for PET scanners) and partial volume effects constrain the ability to delineate small lesions. As a consequence, timely

Introduction Pre-eclampsia (PET) is a pregnancy-specific, multisystem syndrome with endothelial dysfunction and presenting with hypertension and pathologic renal protein excretion. Complicating up to 8% of pregnancies ( 1 , 2 , 3 ), PET is
