18F-FDOPA now available

Fluorodopa (18F) is now available for clinical studies and - with doctor's certificate - for routine patient care. This product is indicated for use in Positive Emission Tomography (PET) in adults and children.
It is used in the diagnosis of various neurological disorders (such as Parkinson's disease), but also in the imaging of specific neuroendocrine tumors.

Neurology

PET with fluorodopa (18F) is indicated to demonstrate a loss of functional dopaminergic nerve endings in the striatum. Defects in dopamine housings are associated with various neurological disorders such as Parkinson's disease. It is therefore used to distinguish essential tremor from parkinsonistic syndromes related to degenerative disorders of the nigrostriatal system (Parkinson's disease, multiple system atrophy and progressive supranuclear palsy).

Oncology

Studies on imaging research show that PET with fluorodopa (18F) allows for a functional approach of pathologies, organs or tissues looking for an increase in intracellular transport and decarboxylation of the amino acid dihydroxyphenylalanine.
