OBJECTIVE To investigate the diagnostic performance of (18)F-fludeoxyglucose ((18)F-FDG) positron emission tomography (PET)/CT in patients with suspected large-vessel vasculitis and its potential to evaluate the extent and activity of disease. METHODS 78 consecutive patients (mean age 63 years; 53 females) with suspected large-vessel vasculitis were evaluated with (18)F-FDG PET/CT.( 18)F-FDG uptake in the aorta and major branches was visually graded using a four-point scale and quantified… CONTINUE READING
