OBJECTIVE To investigate the role of (18) F-fluorodeoxyglusose positron-emission tomography (FDG-PET), combined with computed tomography (CT) and forced diuresis, in the staging and follow-up of urothelial carcinoma (UC). PATIENTS AND METHODS We recruited 44 patients with muscle-invasive urothelial bladder cancer (UBC) before radical cystectomy (RC), 19 under follow-up after RC and seven after systemic chemotherapy. For those who had RC, histopathology was used as the reference standard to… CONTINUE READING
