Objective: The aim of this study was to explore the diagnostic value of positron emission tomography (PET) using the amino acid O-(2-18F-fluoroethyl)-L-tyrosine (18F-FET) tracer in patients with newly diagnosed brain lesions in comparison to histological findings obtained from stereotactic serial biopsy.[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
