Tomographic imaging with either F-18 fluoro deoxyglucose (FDG) (a nonmetabolizable glucose analog that reflects tumor increased glucose metabolism) or technetium Tc-99m Depreotide (a synthetic peptide that binds with high affinity to cell surface receptors with increased expression on certain tumor cells) provides improved sensitivity and specificity in the differential diagnosis of solitary pulmonary nodules (SPN) compared with noninvasive and some invasive procedures. F-18 FDG requires… CONTINUE READING
