Bevacizumab is effective in treating radiation necrosis; however, radiation necrosis was not definitively diagnosed in most previous reports. Here we used amino acid positron emission tomography to diagnose radiation necrosis for the application of bevacizumab in treating progressive radiation necrosis. Lesion/normal tissue ratios of <2.5 on (18)fluoride-labeled boronophenylalanine-positron emission tomography were defined as an indication of effective bevacizumab treatment. Thirteen patients… CONTINUE READING
