BACKGROUND We previously reported that positron emission tomography (PET) with 18-F-fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) might be a useful tool for evaluating the stage of esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (SCC), and that FDG-PET shows greater accuracy in the diagnosis of lymph node metastasis than computed tomography. Further, we elucidated the relationships among… CONTINUE READING
