Colchicine must be stopped before imaging with [18F]-methylcholine PET/CT.

Abstract

Choline is an essential amino acid, which is needed for the synthesis of membrane phospholipids. The choline uptake pathway is increasingly applied for molecular imaging of proliferating tumors. We describe a patient in whom we encountered an unexpected finding when he was referred for a routine [18F]-methylcholine PET/computed tomography scan to restage… (More)
