Neuroblastoma: positron emission tomography with 2-[fluorine-18]-fluoro-2-deoxy-D-glucose compared with metaiodobenzylguanidine scintigraphy.

Abstract

PURPOSE To assess the uptake in neuroblastoma of 2-[fluorine-18] -fluoro-2-deoxy-D-glucose (FDG) versus metaiodobenzylguanidine (MIBG). MATERIALS AND METHODS Seventeen patients with known or suspected neuroblastoma underwent FDG positron emission tomography (PET) (20 scans) and MIBG scintigraphy. Tumor uptake of FDG was quantified on positive PET scans… (More)
