The accumulation of 3′-deoxy-3′-[F-18]fluorothymidine (FLT) on positron emission tomography (PET) images in patients with glioblastoma multiforme was evaluated and correlated with gadopentetate dimeglumine (Gd-DTPA) enhancement in magnetic resonance images (MRIs). FLT studies in 10 patients with recurrent glioblastoma multiforme were retrospectively investigated. Dynamic emission data were acquired for 60 minutes immediately after injection of FLT. The standardized uptake value (SUV) for tumor… CONTINUE READING
