Diagnostic usefulness of 18F-FAMT PET and L-type amino acid transporter 1 (LAT1) expression in oral squamous cell carcinoma


l-[3-18F]-α–Methyltyrosine (18F-FAMT) was developed as an amino acid tracer for PET imaging to provide better specificity than 2-[18F]fluoro-2-deoxy-d-glucose (18F-FDG) PET for cancer diagnosis. We investigated the diagnostic usefulness of 18F-FAMT in oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC). The correlation between tumour uptake of 18F-FAMT and L-type amino… (More)
