Regional cerebral turnover of 11C following intravenous injection of 11C-1-pyruvate was investigated in 12 patients with brain tumors. The positron emission tomography (PET) image taken at 10–15 min after the injection always demonstrated a high concentration of 11C in tumor, and thus visualized precise tumor contours. This phenomenon was not influenced… CONTINUE READING
