18F-FDG uptake on PET in primary mediastinal non-thymic neoplasm: a clinicopathological study.

BACKGROUND The usefulness of 2-[(18)F]-fluoro-2-deoxy-D-glucose ((18)F-FDG) positron emission tomography (PET) has been investigated in thymic epithelial tumors. However, little is known about PET imaging of (18)F-FDG in primary non-thymic mediastinal neoplasms. The aim of this study is to explore the clinicopathological significance of (18)F-FDG PET in… CONTINUE READING
