Dopamine dysfunction in depression: application of texture analysis to dopamine transporter single-photon emission computed tomography imaging
Transl Psychiatry. 2022 Aug 3;12(1):309. doi: 10.1038/s41398-022-02080-z.ABSTRACTDopamine dysfunction has been associated with depression. However, results of recent neuroimaging studies on dopamine transporter (DAT), which reflect the function of the dopaminergic system, are inconclusive. The aim of this study was to apply texture analysis, a novel method to extract information about the textural properties of images (e.g., coarseness), to single-photon emission ... read more
