Objective: Three different uptake patterns of O-(2-[(18)F]fluoroethyl)-l-tyrosine (18FET) have been shown to occur in patients with suspected WHO II glioma after dynamic PET evaluation: 1) a constantly increasing uptake throughout the entire tumor volume indicative for a grade II glioma. 2)[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
