OBJECTIVES In this work we address the need for the computation of quantitative global tumoral state indicators from oncological whole-body PET/computed tomography scans. The combination of such indicators with other oncological information such as tumor markers or biopsy results would prove useful in oncological decision-making scenarios. MATERIALS AND METHODS From an ordering of 100 breast cancer patients on the basis of oncological state through visual analysis by a consensus of nuclear… CONTINUE READING
