It seems that a controversy has been unearthed here that we don't have all of the facts displayed regarding..physics-chemistry-what is going on, i.e. I remember when I went for my cardiac stress test a few months ago. I saw something in the radiology department that seemed to related to what you are discussing. The stuff I saw (info-pamphlet-publication from GE) appeared to be about radiolabeling dextroamphetamine and injecting it. Then they do a "scan" showing where the brain is using the d-amphetmaine the least or most. Is this accurate?
