Uptakes (a, c) and TBRs (b, d) of L- and D-18F-FBPA (a, b) and L- and D-11C-CMT (c, d) into C6 glioma-bearing rat brains. PET scans were performed as shown in the legend of Fig. 2, and the VOIs of glioma and contralateral normal regions were set on the summation SUV images from 60 to 90 min for 18F-FBPA (a) and from 30 to 60 min for 11C-CMT (c). The target tumor (glioma) to non-target (normal) ratios of L- and D-18F-FBPA (b) and L- and D-11C-CMT (d) were calculated. *P < 0.05 vs. vehicle. #P < 0.05 vs. L-isomer
