Abstract

Ability to discriminate malignant from benign lesions was enhanced by using CARs derived from cerebral cortex, basal ganglia, or cerebellum. Using a 3-tiered diagnostic schema, most lesions could be assigned to categories of very high or very low likelihood of malignancy, with a significant reduction in indeterminant lesions, compared with uncorrected SUV.
