AIM 18-Fluoro-2-deoxy-d-glucose positron emission tomography (18F-FDG PET/CT) is considered to be the most accurate image method of detection of node or distant metastases in cervical cancer. Metabolic tumor volume (MTV) and total lesion glycolysis (TLG) of 18F-FDG PET/CT are volumetric measurements of tumor cells with increased 18F-FDG uptake. The prognostic value of MTV and TLG in patients with advanced cervical cancer (ACC) were evaluated. METHODS 38 patients with ACC from one tertiary… CONTINUE READING
