Analysis of [18F]NS12137 PET data


[18F]NS12137 is a radiopharmaceutical that targets noradrenaline transporter (NET). NET can be used as a marker of sympathetic nervous system activity and innervation.

In preclinical studies [18F]NS12137 has been shown to be a promising radiotracer for NET imaging in the brain (Kirjavainen et al., 2018; López-Picón et al., 2019). The radiosynthesis of [18F]NS12137 is straightforward (Lahdenpohja et al., 2019).
