OBJECTIVE O-(2-[18F]-fluoroethyl)-L-tyrosine positron emission tomography ((18)F-FET-PET) imaging is applied for tumor grading, prognostic stratification, and diagnosis of tumor recurrence, especially in high-grade gliomas. Experience with (18)F-FET-PET imaging in low-grade gliomas is limited. Therefore, the objective of the present study was to assess (18)F-FET-PET tracer uptake in low-grade gliomas and to investigate possible correlations with contrast enhancement in magnetic resonance… CONTINUE READING
