[18F]Fluorothymidine is metabolized during DNA synthesis as an analog of Thymidine. Like FDG, [18F]FLT is metabolically trapped inside the cells and its uptake is correlated to cell proliferation. This tracer is used for the detection, characterization and staging of malignant tumors.
Tracer Type: Metabolic tracer (tumor growth: DNA synthesis)
Application: Multi-purpose oncologic tracer
