Both perfusion-weighted MR imaging (PWI) and O-(2-18F-fluoroethyl)-L-tyrosine PET (18F–FET) provide grading information in cerebral gliomas. The aim of this study was to compare the diagnostic value of 18F–FET PET and PWI for tumor grading in a series of patients with newly diagnosed, untreated gliomas using an integrated PET/MR scanner. Seventy-two patients with untreated gliomas [22 low-grade gliomas (LGG), and 50 high-grade gliomas (HGG)] were investigated with 18F–FET PET and PWI using a… CONTINUE READING
