Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Staging and ReStaging scans [ Time Frame: after hematopoetic recovery ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Estimated Enrollment: 35
Study Start Date: October 2008
Groups/Cohorts Assigned Interventions
Procedure: FLT-PET scan
imaging scan
Procedure: FDG-PET scan
imaging scan

Detailed Description:
The first primary objective reflects a necessary and preliminary requirement: to reproduce published results and validate the use of FLT-PET. In this study, 35 patients will be selected to undergoing imaging with both FLT and FDG PET.
