With the increasing clinical application of FDG PET, interest in metabolic imaging in general is growing among clinicians. The reasons for the great impact that FDG PET is currently making in oncologic diagnostics are (a) the exceptionally high uptake and trapping of FDG in malignant cells and (b) the technical performance of PET systems with high resolution and counting efficiency. These 2 factors together lead to a detection level that just reaches clinical relevancy and may surpass other… CONTINUE READING
