We compared the usefulness of positron emission tomography with the glucose analogue 2-deoxy-2-[18F]-fluoro-d-glucose (FDG-PET) and multidetector-row computed tomography (MD-CT) in diagnosing pancreatic cancer and in determining the patients’ suitability for surgery. We reviewed the clinical FDG-PET data of 103 consecutive pancreatic cancer patients between… CONTINUE READING
