Abstract

Islet amyloid deposition composed of amylin aggregates is regarded as one of the hallmarks of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). For the diagnosis of T2DM, several nuclear medical imaging probes have been developed. However, there have been no reports regarding the development of imaging ...read more
