Brown adipose tissue in humans: detection and functional analysis using PET (Positron Emission Tomography), MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging), and DECT (Dual Energy Computed Tomography)
2014 (English)In: Methods in Enzymology: Methods of Adipose Tissue Biology / [ed] Ormond MacDougald, Elsevier, 2014, 1, 141-159 p.Chapter in book (Other academic)
Research with the aim to translate findings of the beneficial effects induced by brown adipose tissue (BAT) on metabolism, as seen in various non-human experimental systems to also include human metabolism requires tools that accurately measure how BAT influences human metabolism. This review sets out to discuss such techniques, how they can be used, what they can measure and also some of their limitations. The focus is on detection and functional analysis of human BAT and how this can be facilitated by applying advanced imaging technology such as: PET (Positron Emission Tomography), MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging), and DECT (Dual Energy Computed Tomography).
