OBJECTIVES To evaluate osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee using positron emission tomography (PET) with 2-(18)F-fluoro-2-deoxy-D-glucose ((18)F-FDG) as a tracer. MATERIALS AND METHODS Fifteen patients with medial-type knee OA and three healthy subjects were enrolled in the study. After clinical examination and conventional radiography, (18)F-FDG PET and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) were performed. (18)F-FDG uptake was quantified as a standardized uptake value (SUV) and the localization of… CONTINUE READING
