Positron emission tomography (PET) is unique for quantitatively assessing treatment response before marked morphological changes are detectable by Computed Tomography (CT). PET response criterion (PERCIST) is a widely accepted approach of assessing metabolic response of malignant lesions by using Standardized uptake value (SUV) normalized by lean body mass (LBM) with a volume of interest (VOI) reference defined in the right lobe of liver. However, the operator-dependent delineation of VOI… CONTINUE READING
