Fractional 14(R,S)-18FTHA uptake rate in the heart (A) and liver (C) and net chylomicron–fatty acid uptake rate in the heart (B) and liver (D) between times 90 and 120 min after oral administration of the tracer. Radioactivity in aorta (closed circles), left ventricle (open circles), and liver (closed squares) during dynamic PET acquisition is shown from a representative participant (E). P values are from Mann–Whitney test.
