Long–Half-Life 89Zr-Labeled Radiotracers Can Guide Percutaneous Biopsy Within the PET/CT Suite Without Reinjection of Radiotracer

David T. Drummond ⎜Apr 25, 2018 ⎜ Industry

PET/CT-guided percutaneous biopsy can be safely and accurately performed within the PET/CT suite without reinjection of the¬†89Zr-labeled radiotracer after the initial injection for diagnostic imaging.¬†89Zr-labeled radiotracers targeting specific proteins may be useful for both detection and molecular profiling in high-risk patients presenting with widely disseminated disease. Studies such as this may add clinical justification for the use of molecular imaging in interventional oncology and for promoting future access to interventional PET imaging facilities. (more…)
