Titel:
Tumour hypoxia imaging with [(18)F]FAZA PET in head and neck cancer patients: a pilot study. 
Abstract:
PURPOSE: Hypoxia is an important negative prognostic factor for radiation treatment of head and neck cancer. This study was performed to evaluate the feasibility of use of (18)F-labelled fluoroazomycin arabinoside ([(18)F]FAZA) for clinical PET imaging of tumour hypoxia. METHODS: Eleven patients (age 59.6 +/- 9 years) with untreated advanced head and neck cancer were included. After injection of approximately 300 MBq of [(18)F]FAZA, a dynamic sequence up to 60 min was acquired on an ECAT HR+ PET...    »
