Contribution of 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography to the diagnosis of early pancreatic carcinoma.


BACKGROUND/PURPOSE Pancreatic carcinoma has a poor prognosis, and early detection is essential to allow potentially curative resection. Despite the wide array of diagnostic tools available, the detection of small pancreatic tumors remains difficult. The aim of this study was to investigate the contribution of 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission… (More)
