To assess the ability of [(18)F]fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography for the early prediction of response in patients with relapsed metastatic germ cell tumours undergoing salvage high-dose chemotherapy. The role of positron emission tomography was compared with established means of tumour response assessment such as CT scans/MRI and serum tumour(More)
Purpose: The purpose of this study was to assess the ability of fluorine-18-labeled fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography (18 F-FDG-PET), computed tomography (CT)/magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and serum tumor marker (TM) to predict the viability of residual masses after high-dose chemotherapy (HD-Ctx) in patients with metastatic germ-cell(More)
Due to the stochastic nature of radioactive decay, any measurement of radioactivity concentration requires spatial averaging. In pharmacokinetic analysis of time-activity curves (TAC), such averaging over heterogeneous tissues may introduce a systematic error (heterogeneity error) but may also improve the accuracy and precision of parameter estimation.
