OBJECTIVE The effectiveness of positron emission tomography with (18)F-fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG-PET) for diagnosis of uterine sarcoma was evaluated in comparison to the effectiveness of magnetic resonance (MR) imaging and power Doppler imaging. METHOD The cases of five Osaka City University Hospital patients diagnosed with uterine sarcoma based on histopathological examination, in whom FDG-PET, MR imaging, and power Doppler imaging studies had been performed preoperatively, were reviewed.
