BACKGROUND Some studies reported the usefulness of fluorine-18-fluorodeoxyglucose (18F-FDG) positron emission tomography (PET) and PET/computed tomography (CT) in patients with Merkel cell carcinoma (MCC). OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to systematically review and meta-analyze published data about the diagnostic performance of 18F-FDG PET and PET/CT in patients with MCC. METHODS A comprehensive literature search of studies published through June 2013 regarding 18F-FDG PET and PET/CT… CONTINUE READING
