PURPOSE: Normalization of tumor vasculature after administering bevacizumab (BEV) makes assessment of therapeutic response using MRI difficult. The aim of this study was to clarify whether PET with C-methyl-L-methionine (MET-PET) would supplement MRI assessing of response after initiating BEV in glioblastoma. METHODS: Twenty patients with recurrent glioblastoma were treated with biweekly BEV plus temozolomide. Both MRI and MET-PET were performed before treatment (baseline) and at 4 and 8 weeks after starting treatment...

BACKGROUND: Methionine transport across plasma membranes occurs via large amino acid transporter ( LAT1), which is overexpressed in malignant cells leading to tracer accumulation within tumors. We investigated the uptake of (11)C-methionine in children and young adults newly diagnosed with Hodgkin lymphoma (HL) or non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) and compared the biodistribution of (11)C-methionine PET-CTs ((11)C- METPET) to that of (18)F-FDG PET-CT ((18)F-FDGPET). METHODS & MATERIALS: Conducted under an IND, we prospectively enrolled patients with newly diagnosed HL (N = 19) and NHL (N = 2) onto the IRB-approved investigation of (11)C-METPET...

BACKGROUND: 99mTc-sestamibi (MIBI) parathyroid SPECT is generally regarded as the best preoperative localizing method in patients with hyperparathyroidism (HPT). However, 99mTc-MIBI SPECT is false negative in approximately 25% of adenomas. 11C-methionine positron emission tomography (PET) has been used in HPT with negative 99mTc-MIBI SPECT scan results. PURPOSE: To systematically review and conduct a meta-analysis of published data on the performance of 11C-methionine PET in patients with HPT with negative 99mTc-MIBI SPECT...

OBJECTIVE: To determine if functional imaging using (11)C-methionine positron emission tomography co-registered with 3D gradient echo MRI (Met-PET/MRI), can identify sites of residual active tumour in treated acromegaly, and discriminate these from post-treatment change, to allow further targeted treatment. DESIGN/METHODS: Twenty-six patients with persistent acromegaly after previous treatment, in whom MRI appearances were considered indeterminate, were referred to our centre for further evaluation over a 4...

: Myocarditis represents a major cause of dilated cardiomyopathy and sudden cardiac death in younger adults. Currently, definitive diagnosis of myocarditis requires endomyocardial biopsy, which is highly invasive and has the drawback of variable sensitivity due to inherent sampling error. Therefore, reliable non-invasive methods to detect and monitor cardiac inflammation are clinically relevant. In this study, we explored the potential of radiolabeled methionine to assess myocardial inflammatory activity in a rat model of experimental autoimmune myocarditis (EAM)...

BACKGROUND: For pituitary tumors, positron emission tomography (PET) with (11)C-methonine (MET) has been reported as feasible to facilitate diagnosis. MET is well-known to accumulate in the normal pituitary glands, but almost no studies have examined the degree of MET accumulation in the normal pituitary gland. PURPOSE: To investigate accumulation of MET in normal pituitary gland on PET/CT. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Among patients who underwent PET/CT using MET over the past 7 years, 77 patients who fulfilled our criteria for normal pituitary glands were retrospectively selected...

We report a case of a 44-year-old man with neurological symptoms and MRI findings, which were unable to differentiate between glioma and lymphoma. Metabolic characterization by means of PET imaging with F-FDG and C-methionine is proposed to determine the benign or tumor (high- and low-grade) origin of brain lesions. In this case, the MRI lesion corresponded with an inconclusive metabolic pattern of intense F-FDG uptake and no significant C-methionine uptake. Pathological study revealed a false-negative case of C-methionine due to lymphoma...

PURPOSE: The great spatial and temporal resolution of positron emission tomography might provide the answer for patients with primary hyperparathyroidism (pHPT) and non-localized parathyroid glands. We performed a systematic review of the evidence regarding all investigated tracers. METHODS: A study was considered eligible when the following criteria were met: (1) adults ≥17 years old with non-familial pHPT, (2) evaluation of at least one PET isotope, and (3) post-surgical and pathological diagnosis as the gold standard...

BACKGROUND: Astroblastoma is a rare tumor of uncertain origin most commonly presenting in the cerebrum of children and young adults. The literature contains only case reports and small series regarding its radiologic features. This systematic review is the largest study of imaging findings of astroblastoma to date and serves to identify features that might differentiate it from other neoplasms. OBJECTIVE: This study describes the imaging features of astroblastoma based on a systematic review of the literature and two new cases...

18F-fluorodeoxyglucose (18F-FDG) positron emission tomography-computed tomography (PET/CT) is established for characterising indeterminate pulmonary nodules and staging lung cancer where there is curative intent. Whilst a sensitive technique, specificity for characterising lung cancer is limited. There is recognition that evaluation of other aspects of abnormal cancer biology in addition to glucose metabolism may be more helpful in characterising tumours and predicting response to novel targeted cancer therapeutics...

OBJECTIVE: Chromosome 1p/19q deletion is an established prognostic and predictive marker in the WHO grade III oligodendroglial tumours (OT). To estimate the genetic status preoperatively, the authors investigated the correlation between the uptake of (11)C-methionine in positron emission tomography (PET) and the 1p/19q status in grades II and III OT. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed 144 patients with gliomas who received (11)C-methionine PET. 66 cases with grades II-III oligodendrogliomas or oligoastrocytomas underwent fluorescence in situ hybridisation to determine the 1p/19q status...

PURPOSE: MRI is commonly used in the evaluation of pituitary adenomas (PAs). However, it has difficulty to locate the lesions sometimes, especially microadenomas and/or postoperative recurrent tumors. We aimed to evaluate the role of combined C-methionine (MET) and F-FDG PET/CT in patients with functioning PAs. PATIENTS AND METHODS: This study included 43 patients: 15 had Cushing disease, 16 had acromegaly, and 12 had a prolactinoma. F-FDG PET/CT was performed on all of the patients; C-MET PET/CT was performed on 39 of the patients...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Noninvasive radiologic evaluation of glioma can facilitate correct diagnosis and detection of malignant transformation. Although positron-emission tomography is considered valuable in the care of patients with gliomas, (18)F-fluorodeoxyglucose and (11)C-methionine have reportedly shown ambiguous results in terms of grading and prognostication. The present study compared the diagnostic and prognostic capabilities of diffusion tensor imaging, FDG, and (11)C-methionine PET in nonenhancing gliomas...

Cancer remains a leading cause of death in Canada and worldwide. Whilst advances in anatomical imaging to detect and monitor malignant disease have continued over the last few decades, limitations remain. Functional imaging, such as positron emission tomography (PET), has improved the sensitivity and specificity in detecting malignant disease. In combination with computed tomography (CT), PET is now commonly used in the oncology setting and is an integral part of many cancer patients' pathways. Although initially the CT component of the study was purely for attenuation of the PET imaging and to provide anatomical coregistration, many centers now combine the PET study with a diagnostic quality contrast enhanced CT to provide one stop staging, thus refining the patient's pathway...

PURPOSE: The aim of this multi-center study was to assess the diagnostic capability of visual assessment in L-methyl-11C-methionine positron emission tomography (MET-PET) for differentiating a recurrent brain tumor from radiation-induced necrosis after radiotherapy, and to compare it to the accuracy of quantitative analysis. METHODS: A total of 73 brain lesions (glioma: 31, brain metastasis: 42) in 70 patients who underwent MET-PET were included in this study. Visual analysis was performed by comparison of MET uptake in the brain lesion with MET uptake in one of four regions (around the lesion, contralateral frontal lobe, contralateral area, and contralateral cerebellar cortex)...

A 64-year-old man presented with a complaint of left exophthalmos. Whole-body F-FDG PET/CT showed increased uptake in the soft tissue masses in the orbits, peripancreas, and left renal hilum. C-methionine (MET) PET/CT of the head and neck showed increased uptake in the orbits, and the SUVmax of the left orbital lesion was 7.0. The patient was finally diagnosed as IgG4-related disease by the results of increased serum IgG4 and the biopsy of the orbital lesion. Although C-MET is generally considered as a tumor-specific tracer, fibrous tissues of IgG4-related disease may be visualized by C-MET PET/CT...
