Target Audience

This article contains information of value to physicians in nuclear medicine, hepatogastroenterology, and capillary physiology who have interest in liver physiology and pathophysiology, as well as treatment of patients with liver diseases.

Objectives

On successful completion of this activity, participants should be able to describe...

  1. The role of the liver's blood supply in the interpretation of dynamic PET measurements for estimating hepatic blood perfusion and metabolism.
  2. The limitations of using compartmental analysis of hepatic tracer kinetics in PET studies.
  3. The tracer kinetic advantages of using the metabolic clearance of 18F-FDGal in dynamic PET studies of regional metabolic liver function.
