Blood flow measurements with [(15)O]H2O and [18F]fluoride ion PET in porcine vertebrae.


A dual positron emission tomography (PET) tracer study with [18F]fluoride and the freely diffusible tracer [(15)O]H2O was performed to measure the capillary transport of [18F]fluoride and to evaluate the potential of [18F]fluoride ion PET to quantitate bone blood flow. Under the condition of a high predictable single-pass extraction fraction (E(F)) for [18F… (More)
