PURPOSE This study aimed to investigate the potential of hybrid gadolinium (Gd)-enhanced F-fluoroethyl-L-tyrosine (F-FET) PET/MRI in distinguishing recurrence from radiation necrosis using simultaneously acquired multiple structural and functional parameters. METHODS Twenty-six patients (5 female and 21 male patients; mean ± SD age, 51.58 ± 15.97 years) with single or multiple contrast-enhancing brain lesions (n = 32) on MRI after surgery and radiation therapy were evaluated with… CONTINUE READING
