False Positive and False Negative FDG-PET Scans in Various Thoracic Diseases
False positive and negative findings of PET scan in a variety of diseases are illustrated to help radiologists interpret PET scans more accurately and also to determine the significance of the findings. Expand
Performance of 68Ga-DOTA–Conjugated Somatostatin Receptor–Targeting Peptide PET in Detection of Pheochromocytoma and Paraganglioma: A Systematic Review and Metaanalysis
68Ga-DOTA-SST PET exhibited superior performance for lesion detection, over other functional imaging modalities, in patients with PPGLs, with the exception of polycythemia/paraganglioma syndrome. Expand
Resumption of imatinib to control metastatic or unresectable gastrointestinal stromal tumours after failure of imatinib and sunitinib (RIGHT): a randomised, placebo-controlled, phase 3 trial.
In patients with GIST that is refractory to treatment with all standard tyrosine-kinase inhibitors, the disease continues to harbour many clones that are sensitive to kinase inhibitors and continued kinase suppression might slow, although not halt, disease progression. Expand
Comparison of MRI and 18F-FDG PET/CT in the preoperative evaluation of uterine carcinosarcoma.
In patients with uterine carcinosarcoma, (18)F-FDG PET/CT is comparable to MRI in detecting primary uterine lesions and for detecting extrauterine metastases, it could also be useful to identify unsuspected disease. Expand
Performance of 18F-FDG PET/CT as a postoperative surveillance imaging modality for asymptomatic advanced gastric cancer patients
This study showed good specificity of postoperative surveillance 18F-FDG PET/CT for detecting recurrence, especially at the local anastomosis site, and careful caution should be made for interpreting some false-positive hypermetabolic lesions in postoperative 18F/CT. Expand

TP activity influences [18F]FLT uptake, and may explain preferential uptake of [ 18F] FLT over [3H]Thd, which provides important insights into the biology of [18FsFLT as a proliferation marker. Expand
18F-FDG PET in Patients with Primary Systemic Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma: Differential Features According to Expression of Anaplastic Lymphoma Kinase
Negative-interim PET was a good indicator of CR, and interim or post-therapy PET was helpful for predicting the prognosis only in the ALK-negative group, according to primary systemic ALCL according to ALK expression. Expand
Clinical course and prognostic factors in patients with malignant pheochromocytoma and paraganglioma: A single institution experience
Estimation of prognostic factors associated with the survival of malignant PCC/PG and their clinical courses and prognoses are evaluated. Expand
18F-Fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG)-positron emission tomography/computed tomography in mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue lymphoma: variation in 18F-FDG avidity according to site involvement
For staging, 18F-FDG PET/CT can be helpful mainly for 18F -FDG avid primary MALT lymphomas, and according to the location and gross morphologic characteristics of the Malt lymphoma. Expand
Diagnostic performance of breast-specific gamma imaging in the assessment of residual tumor after neoadjuvant chemotherapy in breast cancer patients
The diagnostic performance of BSGI in the assessment of residual tumor is comparable to that of MRI in breast cancer patients, and BSGI may be more accurate than MRI. Expand
