Current status of 18F-DOPA PET imaging in the detection of brain tumor recurrence.

Abstract

UNLABELLED Considering the intrinsic limits of fluorine-18-dfluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography ((18)F-FDG PET/CT) for diagnosing brain tumors and tumor recurrence, several radiopharmaceuticals have been developed to detect brain tumor recurrence after treatment. Among others, a promising tracer is fluorine-18… (More)
