  • PURPOSE Fluorine-18 fluorodeoxyglucose (F-18 FDG) positron emission tomographic (PET) imaging can be a vital tool in the evaluation and preoperative staging of pulmonary neoplasms. Imaging studies on the gamma camera using coincidence PET (co-PET) were introduced recently into clinical practice. This prospective study assessed the efficacy of co-PET for identifying primary tumors, mediastinal lymph node involvement, the presence of distant spread, the effect on disease staging, and influence on… CONTINUE READING
