The aim of this study was to evaluate the clinical and therapeutic value of digital fusion image (FI) of positron emission tomography (PET) using 18F-fluorodeoxy glucose and computed tomography (CT) in patients who were suspected of having a local recurrence of rectal cancer. Forty-two patients (32 men and 10 women; mean age, 61.4 years, range, 40–79 years) with a suspicion of local recurrence after curative resection of rectal cancer were prospectively recruited and underwent 18F-fluorodeoxy… CONTINUE READING
