Simplified measurement of deoxyglucose utilization rate.
UNLABELLED The reliability of the dose uptake ratio (DUR), a widely used index of 18F-fluoro-2-deoxy-D-glucose (18FDG) metabolism in a variety of tumors, depends on the overall rate of removal ofExpand

The dose uptake ratio as an index of glucose metabolism: useful parameter or oversimplification?
UNLABELLED The dose uptake ratio (DUR) has been used as a quantitative index of glucose metabolism for tumor classification and monitoring response to treatment. In order to provide consistentExpand
