18F-FDG-PET/CT: an accurate method to assess the activity of Takayasu’s arteritis

Abstract

The objective of the study is to investigate the value of 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose–positron emission tomography/computed tomography (18F-FDG-PET/CT) for assessment of the activity of Takayasu’s arteritis (TA) and the correlation between acute-phase reactive proteins (ARPs) and standard uptake value (SUV). Analyses of the clinical characteristics and 42 18F… (More)
