[11C]raclopride is a well established PET tracer for the quantification of dopamine 2/3 receptors (D2/3R) in the striatum. Outside of the striatum the receptor density is up to two orders of magnitude lower. In contrast to striatal binding, the characteristics of extrastriatal [11C]raclopride binding quantification has not been thoroughly described. Still, binding data for e.g., neocortex is frequently reported in the scientific literature. Here we evaluate the validity and reliability of extrastriatal [11C]raclopride binding quantification. Two sets of healthy control subjects were examined with HRRT and [11C]raclopride: i) To assess the validity of extrastriatal [11C]raclopride binding estimates, eleven subjects were examined at baseline and after dosing with quetiapine, a D2/3R antagonist. ii) To assess test-retest repeatability, nine subjects were examined twice. Non displaceable binding potential (BPND) was quantified using the simplified reference tissue model. Quetiapine dosing was associated with decrease in [11C]raclopride BPND in temporal cortex (18±17% occupancy) and thalamus (20±17%), but not in frontal cortex. Extrastriatal occupancy was lower than in putamen (51±4%). The mean absolute variation was 4-7% in the striatal regions, 17% in thalamus, and 13-59% in cortical regions. Our data indicate that [11C]raclopride PET is not a suitable tool for D2/3R binding quantification in extrastriatal regions.
