This study assessed the feasibility of F-18-fluorodeoxyglucose positron-emission tomography ((18)F-FDG PET) in the post-therapy surveillance for patients with endometrial cancer showing no evidence of disease (NED). From April 1997 to June 2007, 127 patients with endometrial cancer showing NED were performed (18)F-FDG PET scan. The feasibility of (18)F-FDG PET for the early detection of recurrence in patients with endometrial cancer was evaluated retrospectively. Of the 127 patients, 32… CONTINUE READING
