PET of brain amyloid and tau in mild cognitive impairment.
BACKGROUND Amyloid senile plaques and tau neurofibrillary tangles are neuropathological hallmarks of Alzheimer's disease that accumulate in the cortical regions of the brain in persons with mildExpand

Evaluation of the skeletal kinetics of fluorine-18-fluoride ion with PET.
To evaluate the feasibility of quantitatively assessing regional skeletal fluoride uptake in humans in focal and generalized bone disease, we investigated the skeletal kinetics of [18F]fluoride ionExpand

Localization of neurofibrillary tangles and beta-amyloid plaques in the brains of living patients with Alzheimer disease.
The authors used 2-(1-(6-[(2-[18F]fluoroethyl)(methyl)amino]-2-naphthyl)ethylidene)malononitrile ([18F]FDDNP), a hydrophobic radiofluorinated derivative ofExpand

18F-FDOPA PET imaging of brain tumors: comparison study with 18F-FDG PET and evaluation of diagnostic accuracy.
UNLABELLED We evaluated the amino acid and glucose metabolism of brain tumors by using PET with 3,4-dihydroxy-6-(18)F-fluoro-l-phenylalanine ((18)F-FDOPA) and (18)F-FDG. METHODS Eighty-one patientsExpand

Imaging proliferation in brain tumors with 18F-FLT PET: comparison with 18F-FDG.
UNLABELLED 3'-Deoxy-3'-(18)F-fluorothymidine ((18)F-FLT) is a recently developed PET tracer to image tumor cell proliferation. We characterized (18)F-FLT PET of brain gliomas and compared (18)F-FLTExpand

Serotonin 1A receptors in the living brain of Alzheimer's disease patients.
4-[F-18]fluoro-N-{2-[4-(2-methoxyphenyl)-1-piperazinyl]ethyl}-N-(2-pyridinyl)benzamide, a selective serotonin 1A (5-HT(1A)) molecular imaging probe, was used in conjunction with positron emissionExpand

Predicting treatment response of malignant gliomas to bevacizumab and irinotecan by imaging proliferation with [18F] fluorothymidine positron emission tomography: a pilot study.
PURPOSE Evaluation of treatment effects in malignant brain tumors is challenging because of the lack of reliable response predictors of tumor response. This study examines the predictive value ofExpand

Repetitive, non-invasive imaging of the dopamine D2 receptor as a reporter gene in living animals
Reporter genes (eg β-galactosidase, chloramphenicol-acetyltransferase, green fluorescent protein, luciferase) play critical roles in investigating mechanisms of gene expression in transgenic animalsExpand

Human pharmacokinetic and dosimetry studies of [(18)F]FHBG: a reporter probe for imaging herpes simplex virus type-1 thymidine kinase reporter gene expression.
UNLABELLED 9-[4-[(18)F]fluoro-3-(hydroxymethyl)butyl]guanine ([(18)F]FHBG) has been used as a reporter probe to image expression of herpes simplex virus type-1 thymidine kinase (HSV1-tk) reporterExpand

Noninvasive, quantitative imaging in living animals of a mutant dopamine D2 receptor reporter gene in which ligand binding is uncoupled from signal transduction
The dopamine D2 receptor (D2R) has been used in adenoviral delivery systems and in tumor cell xenografts as an in vivo reporter gene. D2R reporter gene expression has been non-invasively,Expand
