The Evaluation of Hypoxia Imaging in Patients With Pancreatic Cancer Using Positron Emission Tomography (PET) With 18F-Fluoroazomycin Arabinoside (18F-FAZA)
This is a single centre, single arm hypoxia study of pancreatic cancer with PET FAZA
PET-CT imaging of tumor hypoxia with FAZA will be done prior to the start of standard
treatment for pancreatic cancer with chemotherapy. The FAZA PET-CT imaging session will last
approximately 2.5 hours and include an initial dynamic scan to completely characterize the
initial rapid phase of FAZA uptake, followed by a later static scan.
Observational Model: Cohort, Time Perspective: Prospective
Measure the hypoxia level in Patients with Pancreatic Cancer using Positron Emission Tomography (PET) with 18F-Fluoroazomycin Arabinoside (18F-FAZA).
