Abstract

PET imaging with [F]FDG can be used after transplantation to monitor the evolution of rejection. Decreased uptake of [N]NH3 in rejecting allografts may be reflective of decreased myocardial blood flow. These data suggest that combined [F]FDG and [N]NH3 PET imaging could be used as a noninvasive, quantitative technique for serial monitoring of allograft rejection and has potential application in human transplant recipients.
