The correlation between 99mTc-MIBI uptake and MIB-1 as a nuclear proliferation marker in glioma – a comparative study with 201Tl


Technetium-99m methoxy-isobutylisonitrile (MIBI), like thallium-201 (201Tl), is a highly efficient agent for the diagnosis and monitoring of glioma tumors. Although 201Tl uptake is known to be partly associated with proliferative activity, little is known about the correlation between MIBI uptake and proliferation activity in gliomas. The current study was… (More)
