And ATP is the goal for converting the energy in food to energy that the cells in the body can use. For each NADH molecule that’s produced in the Krebs cycle, three molecules of ATP can be generated. For each molecule of FADH2 that’s produced in the Krebs cycle, two molecules of ATP are made. Chapter 2: What Your Body Does All Day Digging deeper into the Krebs cycle The Krebs cycle is a complex set of chemical reactions that take place within the mitochondria of all eukaryotic cells. With the loss of water, citric acid changes to cis-aconitic acid.

Transverse planes can go anywhere to create cross sections. When looking at a cross section of a body part, imagine that the body is sectioned horizontally. Or think of a music box that has a top that opens on a hinge. The transverse plane is where the music box top separates from the bottom of the box. Imagine that you open the box by lifting the lid, and you look at the material lining the lid. That’s the vantage point that you have when looking at a cross section. Anatomical planes can “pass through” the body at any angle.

The isotope emits radiation continuously from within the body, allowing the metabolism of the drug to be traced by radiation detectors and digitally converted to images. One of these nuclear medicine techniques, called positron emission tomography (PET), can show precisely how some cells use sugar. Nuclear medicine techniques have been in use since the 1950s and, like other imaging technologies, continue to be developed and applied clinically and in research. Ultrasound imaging technology uses the echoes of sound waves sent into the body to generate a signal that a computer turns into a real-time image of anatomy and physiology.
