  1. Data were obtained at 30, 60, and 90 min post-tracer injection (n = 6). Values are the means ± SD. Superscripts * within rows indicate that the mean SUVs differ at 90 min compared with that at 0 min by P < 0.05; a, b, c within columns indicate that the mean SUVs differ from that of the occipital cortex, cerebellar cortex, and temporal cortex by P < 0.05; †Values for the composite comprise the average SUVs for the frontal, parietal, temporal, occipital, anterior cingulate, and posterior cingulate cortices; SUV standardized uptake value
