Targeting Serotonin Transporter in Neuropsychiatric Disorders with 4-[F-18]ADAM /PET Imaging

Targeting Serotonin Transporter in Neuropsychiatric Disorders with 4-[F-18]ADAM /PET Imaging

It was demonstrated that 4-[F-18]ADAM could provide an imaging assessment of brain serotonin system variability, and to resolve the current lack of objective neuroimaging for neuropsychiatric disorders.

Overview
4-[F-18]ADAM for today 's best targeting serotonin transporter (SERT) in a brain with a half - life of 109 minutes of fluorine-18 labeling. Neuroimaging with PET/CT could be obtained by a little amount of radiotracer. 4-[F-18]ADAM/PET images help to diagnose and evaluate neuropsychiatric disorders related to serotonin system (depression, insomnia, and drug addiction, etc.). For example, Serotonin transporters in the brain of patients diagnosed with major depression were significantly lower in several brain regions than those in the control group.

Service Procedure
The patient will receive 8mCi 4-[F-18]ADAM, and the PET/CT image scanning begin 120 minutes after tracer injection. An initial scout scan to define the imaging field follows by a low-dose CT scan of brain. 4-[F-18]ADAM/PET scan follows by the PET emission scan. PET data is acquired for 20 minutes/bed in 3D mode.
