Early metabolic change in 18F-FDG-PET by measuring the single largest lesion predicts chemotherapeutic effects and patients’ survival: PEACH study


The objective of this study was to investigate the predictive value of F-18-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography (FDG-PET) for early assessment of tumor response to chemotherapy and for patient survival in gynecologic malignancies. We performed CT and FDG-PET scans before initiation of chemotherapy to determine baseline conditions. PET scan was… (More)
