Objective: The present study aimed to identify the clinical significance of fluorine-18 fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography (FDG-PET) imaging in patients with occupational cholangiocarcinoma. Methods: This study included 10 men with occupational cholangiocarcinoma who were former or current workers at a printing company in Osaka, Japan. Of the 10 patients, 2 had 2 main tumors and 1 had 3 main tumors. Twelve FDG-PET imaging findings in the 10 patients could be analyzed. We evaluated… CONTINUE READING
