|Title:||Suppression of 18F-FDG signal in the bladder on small animal PET-CT.|
Positron Emission Tomography Computed Tomography
|Abstract:||Retention of 2-deoxy-2-[18F]fluoro-D-glucose 18F-FDG in the bladder causes more problems in small animal research than in human research owing to the smaller size of the subject. Catheterization has been proposed to reduce bladder spillover both in human studies and in small animal research. Noninvasive alternatives such as hydration plus furosemide also seem to be a promising pre-imaging strategy for decreasing bladder spillover. Our main goal was to measure the effects of the combination of furosemide and hydration for reducing bladder signal directly on mouse bowel 18F-FDG-PET images.|
