The intense uptake of (18)F-FBnTP into BAT at room temperature and the response to cold stimulation suggest the unique potential advantage of (18)F-FBnTP not only in detecting unstimulated BAT at high contrast but also in quantifying the mitochondrial thermogenic activity. (18)F-FBnTP PET may serve as a useful technique to assess BAT volume and function.
