Abstract

We evaluated the relationships between the cerebral metabolic rate of glucose (CMRglu) measured by dynamic (18)F-fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) and the clinical and neuropsychological assessment before and after the surgical procedure in idiopathic normal pressure hydrocephalus (INPH) patients.
