UNLABELLED Purpose of the present study was to evaluate the role of (18)F-FDOPA PET/CT for predicting survival in patients with suspected recurrent glioma. METHODS A total of 33 previously treated, histopathologically proven glioma patients with clinical and contrast enhanced MRI findings suspicious for recurrence were enrolled in this prospective study. All patients underwent (18)F-FDOPA PET/CT. Ratios of tumor uptake to normal tissue uptake were generated by dividing the tumor SUVmax with… CONTINUE READING
