Why is there a poster about Dopamine in the X-ray Room?
I mean, Dopamine is a neurotransmitter and thus cannot be detected with x-rays, not that x-rays are used with high frequency on the brain. There are other scans for that.
Blame the fact Neuro is currently all about the Dopamine for me noticing this fact
Current Mood: curious
Technically NMR is not using radiation, just magnetic fields. Sorry, I am still too proud of that A in the exam to let this go ;)
I could see why they would want one machine for it, IIRC you usually do both anyway (as PET only gives you these nice blobs of colour), and it would be a lot cheaper to just buy one machine for two purposes
