Oxygen-18 is used as precursor for medical radioisotope Fluorine-18
production, which is used in PET (positron emission tomography).
Oxygen-18 in the water or gaseous form serves as a source for short-lived positron-emitting isotope fluorine-18
, which allows tracking the processes of cerebral blood flow, glucose metabolism in the central nervous and cardiovascular systems, evaluating the impact of drugs on neuroreceptors.
fludeoxyglucose uptake on positron emission tomography CT in patients with lymphoma: clinical significance and management impact.
MFBG, labeled with the isotope Fluorine-18
, can be used in conjunction with Positron Emission Tomography for the assessment of neuronal integrity.
fluorode-oxyglucose positron emission tomography in the management of solitary pulmonary nodule: A review.
NAV4694 is a Fluorine-18
labeled precision radiopharmaceutical candidate intended for use in positron emission tomography imaging and evaluation of patients with signs or symptoms of cognitive impairment such as Alzheimer's disease (AD).
fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography-computed tomography (18F-FDG PET-CT) scan performed for systemic screening demonstrated a dense hypermetabolic activity located in the right thyroid lobe, suggesting a malignancy [Figure 2].
Lantheus Holdings announced "positive" new data from a Phase 2 study of LMI 1195, a fluorine-18
labeled tracer for use in cardiac positron emission tomography to assess myocardial presynaptic sympathetic nerve function.
([.sup.18]F) fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) is an imaging modality used to obtain anatomic and metabolic data on cancer cells in numerous malignancies (2,3).
Most of the new products that are expected to reach the market by 2024-2026 will be labelled with Fluorine-18
, Gallium-68 or Technetium-99m for the radiodiagnostics and with Lutetium-177 and Iodine-131 for the radiotherapeutic products.
is a frequently used radionuclide for PET imaging, and its nonradioactive isotope fluorine-19 ([sup.19]F) is very useful in MRI applications.
