Purpose: O-(2-[F]fluoroethyl)-L-tyrosine (FET), a PET radiotracer of amino acid uptake, has shown potential for diagnosis and treatment planning in patients with glioblastoma (GBM). To improve quantitative assessment of FET PET imaging, we evaluated the repeatability of uptake of this tracer in patients with GBM.
Methods: Test-retest FET PET imaging was performed on 8 patients with histologically confirmed GBM, who previously underwent surgical resection of the tumour. Read More
