Pheochromocytomas: imaging with 2-[fluorine-18]fluoro-2-deoxy-D-glucose PET.

Abstract

PURPOSE To assess the sensitivity of positron emission tomography (PET) with 2-[fluorine-18]fluoro-2-deoxy-D-glucose (FDG) in pheochromocytomas and, secondarily, to compare images obtained with FDG PET to those obtained with metaiodobenzylguanidine (MIBG) scintigraphy.
