BACKGROUND PET-based texture features have been used to quantify tumor heterogeneity due to their predictive power in treatment outcome. We investigated the sensitivity of texture features to tumor motion by comparing static (3D) and respiratory-gated (4D) PET imaging. METHODS Twenty-six patients (34 lesions) received 3D and 4D [18F]FDG-PET scans before(More)
An important challenge to using fluorodeoxyglucose-positron emission tomography (FDG-PET) in clinical trials of brain tumor patients is to identify malignant regions whose metabolic activity shows significant changes between pretreatment and a posttreatment scans in the presence of high normal brain background metabolism. This paper describes a(More)
Preclinical xenograft models have contributed to advancing our understanding of the molecular basis of prostate cancer and to the development of targeted therapy. However, traditional preclinical in vivo techniques using caliper measurements and survival analysis evaluate the macroscopic tumor behavior, whereas tissue sampling disrupts the microenvironment(More)
