We compared 3'[F-18]fluoro-3'-deoxythymidine (FLT) positron emission tomography (PET) and 2-deoxy-2-[F-18]fluoro-D-glucose (FDG) for PET visualization of head and neck squamous cell cancers (HNSCCs) and evaluated which might better reflect proliferative activity as indicated by the Ki-67 index. A total of 43 patients with HNSCCs were examined with FLT-PET and FDG-PET. The PET images were evaluated qualitatively for regions of focally increased metabolism and for semiquantitative analysis the… CONTINUE READING
