Bibliography: leaves 94-106. / v, 106, [33] leaves, [2] leaves of plates : / Title page, contents and abstract only. The complete thesis in print form is available from the University Library. / Assessment of myocardial metabolism with radiolabelled substrates and positron emission tomography provides a potentially sensitive technique to investigate physiological and pathological cardiac states "in vitro". Prior studies have indicated that overall metabolic activity cannot be estimated from rates of utilization of any one particular substrate. It was hypothesized that acetate labelled with carbon-11 would provide an index of oxidative metabolism, based on fundamental biochemical principles. The hypothesis is confirmed in studies using isolated perfused rabbit hearts and closed chest canine studies. / Thesis (M.D.)--University of Adelaide, Dept. of Medicine, 1995
