Objective: Metabolic imaging such as O-(2-18F-fluoroethyl)-L thyrosine (FET) positron emission tomography (PET) often revealed heterogeneous findings in suspected WHO grade II glioma showing one or more HOT-SPOT area(s). To which extent these HOT-SPOTS correlate with malignant tumour parts, has never[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
