AIM To monitor the early responses to irradiation in primary and metastatic colorectal cancer (CRC) with (18)F-fluorothymidine ((18)F-FLT) and (18)F-fluorodeoxyglucose ((18)F-FDG) small-animal position emission tomography (micro-PET). METHODS The primary and metastatic CRC cell lines, SW480 and SW620, were irradiated with 5, 10 and 20 Gy. After 24 h, the cell cycle phases were analyzed. A dual-tumor-bearing mouse model of primary and metastatic cancer was established by injecting SW480 and… CONTINUE READING
