Modification and validation of a commercially available portable detector for measurement of adipose tissue blood flow.

Abstract:

Adipose tissue blood flow is measured from the clearance of radioactive xenon from a depot. Traditionally, a NaI detector has been used to measure the residual depot of xenon. However, this is sensitive to movement artefacts. We tested a commercially available lightweight CsI detector which can be strapped to the anterior abdominal wall. In pilot studies the CsI detector produced higher values for adipose tissue blood flow than did a conventional NaI detector. It was modified by inclusion of ...
