Metabolic response on post-therapy FDG-PET predicts patterns of failure after radiotherapy for cervical cancer.

Abstract

PURPOSE To determine the patterns of failure in patients with cervical cancer treated with definitive radiotherapy and evaluated for metabolic response with early posttherapy (18)F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography (FDG-PET). METHODS AND MATERIALS The records of 238 patients with cervical cancer were reviewed. All patients were treated with… (More)
