Abstract

Some works showed that commercial PET systems and 2-deoxy-2-fluoro[18F]-D-glucose (2-[18F]FDG) can be used in plant studies to analyze the transport and allocation of photoassimilates. The aim of this work was to evaluate the effect of characteristics of plant tissues, applied solution and the phenomenon of “escaping positrons” on the visualisation and quantification of the uptake and distribution
