OBJECTIVE This study was aimed to define the predictive values of preoperative Fluorine-18 fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography (F-18 FDG PET/CT) parameters and compared to define effective parameters for prediction of overall survival (OS) and recurrent free survival (RFS) in locally advanced esophageal cancer (LAEC). MATERIALS AND METHODS This study included 44 patients with LAEC who received F-18 FDG PET/CT. Univariate and multivariate analyses were used to… CONTINUE READING
