Abstract

When evaluating the direct effects of treatment on tumor tissue with FDG-PET, employing a Michaelis-Menten glucose correction factor gives the most statistically powerful results. The well-known alternative 'correction', multiplying Ki by blood glucose (or normalized blood glucose), appears to be counter-productive in this setting and should be avoided.
