Title:
Intra-individual comparison of ¹?F-FET and ¹?F-DOPA in PET imaging of recurrent brain tumors. 
Abstract:
Both (18)F-fluorodihydroxyphenylalanine ((18)F-DOPA) and (18)F-fluoroethyltyrosine ((18)F-FET) have already been used successfully for imaging of brain tumors. The aim of this study was to evaluate differences between these 2 promising tracers to determine the consequences for imaging protocols and the interpretation of findings.Forty minutes of dynamic PET imaging were performed on 2 consecutive days with both (18)F-DOPA and (18)F-FET in patients with recurrent low-grade astrocytoma (n = 8) or...    »
