Physiological Conditions and Methodological Prerequisits for the In-Vivo Measurement of Substrate Transport in Tumors

Conference paper


During the last decades scintigraphy has emerged to play an essential role in tumor detection and staging. In view of the recent rapid development of newer imaging techniques, it appears useful to reflect on the clinical applicability of the specific potential of scintigraphy.
