BACKGROUND While pulmonary nodules can be substantially divided into solid and ground-glass opacity (GGO) ones on CT image, they have different biological natures which could cause false positive or(More)
BACKGROUND We examined the sizes of lymph nodes and metastatic foci within the lymph nodes that affect false-positive and false-negative lymph node staging by positron emission tomography in lung(More)
OBJECTIVE To predict a malignant grade of lung cancer by fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography (FDG-PET) scanning, we investigated the correlation between FDG uptake and pathological tumor(More)
OBJECTIVES Although positron emission tomography (PET) using F-fluorodeoxy-glucose (FDG) frequently gives false-negative results for slow-growing tumors, C-acetate (AC)-PET has been reported to be(More)
OBJECTIVE We sought to predict lymph node metastasis and tumor invasiveness in clinical T1 N0 M0 lung adenocarcinomas, and we measured fluorodeoxyglucose uptake on positron emission tomography. (More)
