Dynamic PET tracks early treatment response

Assessing the response of tumours to chemo-radiotherapy as rapidly as possible is critical for patient management. Traditionally, single static PET images have been used to make this assessment. For patients with head-and-neck cancer, pharmacokinetic modelling of 18F-fluoromisonidazole dynamic PET can provide a more detailed characterisation of the tumour microenvironment and a more accurate assessment of response.
