Researchers who used PET/CT with the breakthrough PET radiotracer Ga-68 Galuminox, which identifies reactive oxygen species associated with inflammation, found that the tracer could pinpoint inflammation in a mouse study. The tracer, described in Redox Biology, "could help us assess changes in reactive oxygen species generation over the course of a disease progression, which would provide clinicians better information on when it's best to start and suspend therapy," said researcher Andrew Gelman.
