Metabolites of (18)F-FDG and 3-O-(11)C-methylglucose in pig liver.


UNLABELLED PET uses (18)F-FDG widely to estimate glucose metabolism in vivo. Dynamic PET data are evaluated by kinetic models of the metabolic pathways. Knowledge of the metabolites of FDG is of critical importance for the interpretation of kinetic PET studies. The purpose of this study was to determine the metabolic pathways of FDG and 3-O-(11)C… (More)
