Title:
[Tracers in oncology - preclinical and clinical evaluation]. 
Abstract:
In oncology, PET and PET/CT with tracers beyond FDG target more specific biological processes, such as proliferation (18F-3´-fluoro-3´-deoxy-L-thymidine; 18F-FLT), tumour hypoxia (18F-fluoromisonidazol; 18F-FMISO) and phospholipid metabolism (radioactively labelled choline derivates). FLT is a thymidine analogue which can be labelled with 18F. PET with 18F-FLT enables to non-invasively image and to quantify the proliferation fraction of tumours. Proliferation dependent accumulation of FLT has...    »
