Combination imaging technique detected recurrence in sarcoma

January 10, 2013

Combination analysis with [18F] fluorodeoxyglucose PET/CT was 20% more accurate than contrast-enhanced CT alone in detecting bone or soft tissue sarcoma, according to study results.

Researchers evaluated the diagnostic accuracy and incremental value of [18F] fluorodeoxyglucose (18FDG) PET/CT in a cohort of patients with a history of sarcoma.
