- Imaging the L-Type Amino Acid Transporter-1 (LAT1) with Zr-89 ImmunoPET. Ikotun, Oluwatayo F.; Marquez, Bernadette V.; Huang, Chaofeng; Masuko, Kazue; Daiji, Miyamoto; Masuko, Takashi; McConathy, Jonathan; Lapi, Suzanne E. // PLoS ONE;Oct2013, Vol. 8 Issue 10, p1
The L-type amino acid transporter-1 (LAT1, SLC7A5) is upregulated in a wide range of human cancers, positively correlated with the biological aggressiveness of tumors, and a promising target for both imaging and therapy. Radiolabeled amino acids such as O-(2-[18F]fluoroethyl)-L-tyrosine (FET)...

im: The aim was to examine the clinical applicability of positron-emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) for diagnosing local recurrence of colorectal cancer. Methods: From August 2003 to August 2008, 256 patients with colorectal cancer underwent PET/CT scanning for staging or...
- Importance of Quantification for the Analysis of PET Data in Oncology: Review of Current Methods and Trends for the Future. Tomasi, Giampaolo; Turkheimer, Federico; Aboagye, Eric // Molecular Imaging & Biology;Apr2012, Vol. 14 Issue 2, p131
In oncology, positron emission tomography (PET) is an important tool for tumour diagnosis and staging, assessment of response to treatment and evaluation of the pharmacokinetic properties and efficacy of new drugs. Despite its quantitative potential, however, in daily clinical practice PET is...
- Impact of attenuation correction on the accuracy of FDG-PET in patients with abdominal tumors: a free-response ROC analysis. Hustinx, Roland; Dolin, Ron J.; Bénard, Francois; Bhatnagar, Anish; Chakraborty, Dev; Smith, Robin J.; Jang, Sunyoung; Alavi, Abass // European Journal of Nuclear Medicine;2000, Vol. 27 Issue 9, p1365
Abstract. The aim of this study was to evaluate image quality and lesion detectability with and without attenuation correction in patients with abdominal tumors, using a free-response receiver operating characteristic (FROC) methodology. Thirty-four patients with various abdominal tumors were...
- Colonography by CT, MRI and PET/CT combined with conventional colonoscopy in colorectal cancer screening and staging. Long Sun; Hua Wu; Yong-Song Guan; Fujishiro, Mitsuhiro // World Journal of Gastroenterology;2/14/2008, Vol. 14 Issue 6, p853
Colorectal cancer (CRC) remains a leading cancer killer worldwide. But the disease is both curable and preventable at an early stage. Regular CRC cancer screening has been shown to reduce the risk of dying from CRC. However, the importance of large-scale screening is only now starting to be...
