New probes for PET imaging allow detection of small pancreatic tumors

In a new study entitled “Use of 18F-2-Fluorodeoxyglucose to Label Antibody Fragments for Immuno-Positron Emission Tomography of Pancreatic Cancer” researchers developed new probes combining 18F-2-deoxyfluoroglucose (FDG) with antibody fragments, for positron emission tomography (PET) enabling a better visualization method for tumor screening. Researchers hope the newly developed probes will help clinicians achieve a more accurate and efficient detection of tumors, which could help determine patients’ clinical response to therapeutics.
