Anatomic distribution of fluorodeoxyglucose-avid para-aortic lymph nodes in patients with cervical cancer.


PURPOSE Conformal treatment of para-aortic lymph nodes (PAN) in cervical cancer allows dose escalation and reduces normal tissue toxicity. Currently, data documenting the precise location of involved PAN are lacking. We define the spatial distribution of this high-risk nodal volume by analyzing fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG)-avid lymph nodes (LNs) on positron… (More)
