Diagnosis of recurrent glioma with SPECT and iodine-123-alpha-methyl tyrosine.

Abstract

UNLABELLED Iodine-123-alpha-methyl tyrosine (IMT) allows the investigation of amino acid transport rate in brain neoplasms. It was the aim of this study to evaluate the potential of IMT-SPECT to diagnose the recurrence of gliomas after primary therapy.
