UNLABELLED The purpose of this retrospective analysis was to evaluate the prognostic significance of both initial glucose metabolism as measured by (18)F-FDG PET and osteoblastic activity as measured by (99m)Tc-methylene diphosphonate (MDP) bone scintigraphy in osteosarcoma. METHODS In 29 patients (18 male, 11 female; age range, 5-41 y) with primary osteosarcoma, (18)F-FDG uptake and (99m)Tc-MDP uptake were measured semiquantitatively (average and maximum tumor-to-nontumor ratios [T/NT(av… CONTINUE READING
