The purpose of the present study was to assess the ability of technetium-99m-tetrofosmin (99mTc-TF) to predict tumor malignancy and to compare its uptake with that of thallium-201 (201Tl), technetium-99m-hexakis-2-methoxyisobutyl isonitrile (99mTc-MIBI) and fluorine-18-fluorodeoxyglucose (18F-FDG) in brain tumors. 99mTc-TF single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) imaging was performed in 22 patients with brain tumors and 3 healthy controls. Some of the patients underwent 201Tl (n = 12… CONTINUE READING
