    Abstract. Fluorine-18 labelled alpha-methyltyrosine (FMT) was developed for positron emission tomography (PET) imaging, and its potential for clinical application in patients with brain tumours has been demonstrated. This is the first trial to compare FMT with [sup 18]F-fluoro-2-deoxy-D-glucose...

    Abstract. The aim of this prospective study was to compare fluorine-18 fluorodeoxyglucose ([[SUP18]F]FDG) positron emission tomography (PET) with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in patients with early aortitis, at the time of initial diagnosis and during immunosuppres-sive therapy. The study...
