UNLABELLED This study assessed the clinical performance of a combined PET/CT system using (18)F-FDG in oncologic patients. METHODS (18)F-FDG PET/CT was used to evaluate 204 patients with 586 suspicious lesions. All patients had available follow-up data, enabling assessment of the clinical significance of hybrid PET/CT findings. Differences in interpretation between PET, CT, and fused PET/CT data were prospectively documented for detection, localization, and characterization of each evaluated… CONTINUE READING
