Abstract

PET holds potential to provide additional information about tumour metabolic processes, which could aid brain tumour differential diagnosis, grading, molecular subtyping and/or the distinction of therapy effects from disease recurrence. This review discusses PET techniques currently in use for untreated and treated glioma characterization and aims to critically assess the evidence for different tracers ([F]Fluorodeoxyglucose, choline and amino acid tracers) in this context.
