General anaesthetics can alter the relationship between regional cerebral glucose metabolism rate (rGMR) and regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF). With the present study, we wanted to assess quantitatively the effects of propofol on rCBF and rGMR in the same healthy volunteers measured with positron emission tomography (PET).
