Abstract

(1) To investigate the diagnostic value of some O-(2-[F]fluoroethyl)-L-tyrosine (F-18 FET) indices derived from the dynamic acquisition to differentiate low-grade gliomas from high-grade; (2) to analyze the course of tumor time-activity curves (TACs); and (3) to calculate the individual probability of a high-grade glioma using the logistic regression.
