Title:
Tumour volume delineation in prostate cancer assessed by [11C]choline PET/CT: validation with surgical specimens. 
Abstract:

The aim of this study was to determine if [(11)C]choline PET could be used to localize the carcinomatous tissue within the prostate in order to specifically target this area for example with high-precision radiation therapy.Included in this prospective study were 20 patients with histological proven prostate carcinoma who underwent [(11)C]choline PET/CT bef...    »
