IntroductionAn 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography-computerized tomography (PET-CT) scan is performed after neoadjuvant chemoradiation (nCRT) to restage esophageal cancer. The purpose of this study was to determine the ability of PET-CT to accurately identify interval metastatic disease following nCRT.MethodsThis was a single-institution retrospective review (January 2005–February 2012) of patients with esophageal cancer treated with nCRT who underwent pre- and post-nCRT PET-CT… CONTINUE READING
