Abstract

To assess a novel radiotracer aluminum [18F]fluoride-1,4,7-triazacyclononane-triacetic acid-pegylated dimeric RGD ([18F]ALF-NOTA-PRGD2, denoted as [18F]Alfatide) for positron emission tomography (PET)/X-ray computed tomography (CT) and explore the relationships between clinicopathological characteristics and maximum standard uptake values in primary (SUVP) and metastatic lymph nodes (SUVLN) of patients with esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC), as verified by pathologic examination and compared with those obtained with 2-deoxy-2-[18F]fluoro-D-glucose ([18F]DG) PET.
