OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to assess the performance of FDG PET/CT for the detection of colonic lesions, especially advanced neoplasms (villous or >10-mm adenomas, carcinomas). Because of 18F FDG accumulation in adenomatous polyps, PET using FDG can detect early premalignant colorectal lesions. MATERIALS AND METHODS FDG PET/CT studies performed(More)
BACKGROUND Breast cancer recurrence is often suspected on tumor marker rising in asymptomatic patients. The value of fluorine-18 fluorodeoxyglucose (18FDG)-positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) imaging to detect recurrence and its subsequent impact on patient management were retrospectively assessed. METHODS PET/CT scans were performed(More)
BACKGROUND : To prospectively assess fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography (FDG-PET/CT) staging and prognosis value in patients with suspected inflammatory breast cancer (IBC). METHODS : Sixty-two women (mean age 50.7 +/- 11.4 years) presenting with unilateral inflammatory breast tumors (59 invasive carcinomas; 3 mastitis)(More)
PURPOSE This prospective and bi-centric study was conducted in order to determine the impact of antidiabetic treatments (AD) on (18)F-FDG bowel uptake in type 2 diabetic patients. METHODS Fifty-five patients with previously diagnosed and treated type 2 diabetes mellitus (group 1) were divided in two subgroups: AD treatment including metformin (n=32; group(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this pilot study was to assess whether outcome in metastatic or recurrent breast cancer patients is related to metabolic response to endocrine therapy determined by (18)F-FDG PET/CT. METHODS The study group comprised 22 patients with breast cancer (age 58 ± 11 years, mean ± SD) who were scheduled to receive endocrine therapy. They(More)
BACKGROUND The detection of lymph node metastases in bladder cancer has a major impact on treatment decisions and patients prognosis. Due to limited value of conventional imaging, the place of molecular and functional imaging needs to be precised, particularly in the neoadjuvant setting. METHODS From June 2011 to June 2013, 102 patients with clinically(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this prospective study was to evaluate the impact of integrated PET-CT on treatment management in ovarian carcinoma recurrence suspicion because of increased CA-125. METHODS Twenty-nine patients (mean age=61 years), initially treated for ovarian carcinoma (FIGO stage I n=2, stage II n=3, stage III n=21 and stage IV n=3), presenting(More)
During the last 4 years, we have performed 1200 renal scintigraphies in children under the age of 6 years: 57% of dynamic renal scintigraphies using MAG3 for antenatally diagnosed uropathies (mainly pelvic dilatations and megaureters), 36% of static renal scintigraphies using DMSA for renal sequelae of pyelonephritis with or without vesicoureteric reflux,(More)
