About 210,000 children attend hospital every year with a head injury and admitted to 34,500. A few children with serious head injuries require emergency surgery and intensive care, and delays in the provision of these can be fatal or severe disability severe disabilities.

Many hospitals had designated as specialist trauma or neurosurgical centers no intensive care service for children, and only two-thirds of hospitals surveyed an established way for the management of head injuries in children.Positron emission tomography can image metabolic alterations vandetanib after treatment the protein kinase inhibitor and help the response to treatment and the effectiveness of the be defined therapeutic, according to a study published at the February edition of of the Journal of Nuclear Medicine. Currently being tested in clinical studies were, vandetanib inhibit the functioning of the RET proto-oncogene and other protein kinases examined involved into the origin and progression of cancer. For the most part, clinical trials measurement of the effectiveness on vandetanib due to changes in tumor size Based on activating effect of the mutated RET and other protein kinases at various intracellular metabolic pathway, we hypothesized in that PET imaging can play role in the early evaluation which response to vandetanib, said Martin A.

. Addition he went on, via metabolic in vivo PET imaging data with transcriptional profiling data with cluster analysis is is an innovative permitted allows lots of potential in the field of molecular imaging.
