OBJECTIVE To investigate the prognostic value of metabolic tumour volume (MTV) and total lesion glycolysis (TLG), measured by preoperative positron emission tomography and computerised tomography (PET/CT), in women with endometrial cancer. DESIGN Retrospective cohort study. SETTING A tertiary referral centre. POPULATION Women with endometrial cancer who underwent preoperative (18)F-FDG PET/CT in the period 2004-2009. METHODS Clinicopathological data for 84 women with endometrial cancer… CONTINUE READING
