Mycobacterium tuberculosis infection in patients with cancer, the role of 18-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography for diagnosis and monitoring treatment response.

Abstract

Active tuberculosis (TB) infection including asymptomatic and extrapulmonary disease may be detected with 18-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography (FDG-PET/CT). This report highlights the promising role of FDG-PET/CT for evaluation of TB in high-risk, immunocompromised patients with cancer. PET/CT performed for cancer… (More)
