The utility of combined metabolic and volumetric 18F-FDG PET/CT indices for predicting tumour necrosis fractions following neoadjuvant chemotherapy has not been extensively studied in osteosarcoma. Furthermore, little is known of the early PET/CT responses after only one chemotherapy course. Enrolled in the study were 20 children and young adults with resectable osteosarcoma who had undergone 18F-FDG PET/CT scans before and after neoadjuvant chemotherapy. Maximum standardized uptake value (mSUV… CONTINUE READING
