SNMMI: FAPI PET/CT predicts progressive pulmonary fibrosis better than FDG

AuntMinnie

An emerging PET/CT radiotracer may be more predictive of progressive pulmonary fibrosis in interstitial lung patients than F-18 FDG PET/CT, according to research presented June 8 at the 2024 Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging Annual Meeting (SNMMI). Fibroblast activation protein inhibitor (FAPI) PET/CT demonstrated heightened and extensive uptake in interstitial lung disease (ILD) compared to FDG in a cohort of 97 patients with ILD.
