Early detection of recurrence is clinically important and can improve the prognosis and survival of patients with cancer. CT, considered the primary method of investigation because of its low cost and widespread availability, provides high-resolution anatomic details but may underestimate the actual tumor burden by overlooking small tumor clusters in areas of distorted anatomy after treatment. 18F-FDG PET is an effective whole-body imaging technique that detects metabolic changes preceding… CONTINUE READING
