FluoroCholine (also called FCholine, FCH or [18F]FCH) is a PET diagnostic radiotracer used to detect metastatic prostate cancer, recurrent brain tumor and hepatocellular carcinoma.


The FCH synthetic process is performed on the AllinOne automated synthesizer using a dedicated cassette and a reagent kit.
