BACKGROUND Positron emission tomography-computed tomography (PET-CT) carotid standardised uptake values (SUV) of 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose (18FDG) have been proposed as an inflammatory biomarker for determining cerebrovascular diseases such as stroke. Consideration of varying methodological approaches and software packages is critical to the calculation of accurate SUVs in cross-sectional and longitudinal patient studies. The aim of this study was to investigate whether or not carotid… CONTINUE READING
