Title:
Initial characterization of an 18F-labeled myocardial perfusion tracer. 
Abstract:
PET allows for quantitative, regional myocardial perfusion imaging. The short half-lives of the perfusion tracers currently in use limit their clinical applicability. Here, the biodistribution and imaging quality of a new 18F-labeled myocardial perfusion agent (18F-BMS-747158-02) in an animal model are described. METHODS: The biodistribution of 18F-BMS-747158-02 was determined at 10 and 60 min after injection. The first-pass extraction fraction of the tracer was measured in isolated rat hearts p...    »
