Advances in Brief 2-[F]Fluoro-2-deoxyglucose and Glucose Uptake in Malignant Gliomas before and after Radiotherapy: Correlation with Outcome


Purpose: To examine whether quantitative 1-[C]glucoseor 2-[F]fluoro-2-deoxyglucose (FDG)-positron emission tomography performed before and/or after radiotherapy (RT) of malignant gliomas correlates with treatment outcome. Changes in metabolism between the start and finish of RT, and immediate post-RT studies have received little attention. Experimental… (More)
