Title:
PET imaging with [11C]methyl- L-methionine for therapy monitoring in patients with rectal cancer. 
Abstract:
In this study we evaluated whether positron emission tomography (PET) using the amino acid [11C]methyl- L-methionine (MET) may be used for therapy monitoring in patients with rectal cancer who are undergoing preoperative chemoradiotherapy. A total of 41 MET-PET scans were performed in 26 patients with locally advanced rectal cancers. All patients were examined prior to chemoradiotherapy.
