[18F]Dabrafenib Molecular Imaging in Melanoma Brain Metastasis

Rationale: Dabrafenib is an oral protein tyrosine kinase inhibitor which specifically targets mutated BRAF protein. It is used in the treatment of metastatic melanoma with evidence of a BRAF V600 mutation in genomic material. However, in this group of patients often a heterogenic response to treatment is seen. Heterogeneity in ...
