  • Abstract11C-Methionine (MET) is a useful positron emission tomography (PET) tracer for the evaluation of low-grade gliomas. Among these tumors, a high percentage of low-grade oligodendrogliomas (ODG) are sensitive to chemotherapy with procarbazine, CCNU, and vincristine (PCV). We aimed at: (1) objectively assessing ODG response to PCV by a metabolic index (the Activity Volume Index or AVI) generated from an automated semi-quantification of PET with MET (PET-MET); (2) comparing AVI and… CONTINUE READING
