Title:
Volumetric Analysis of F-18-FET-PET Imaging for Brain Metastases. 
Abstract:
The knowledge of exact tumor margins is of importance for the treating neurosurgeon, radiotherapist, and oncologist alike. The aim of this study was to investigate whether tumor volume and tumor margins acquired by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) are congruent with the findings acquired by O-(2-(18F)-fluoroethyl)-l-tyrosine-positron emission tomography (FET-PET).Patients received FET-PET and MRI before surgery for brain metastases. Metastases were quantified by calculating tumor-to-background u...    »
