OBJECTIVES The objectives of this study were to assess the maximum standardized uptake value (SUVmax) of F-fluorodeoxyglucose (F-FDG) by a primary tumor of endometrial cancer with the use of positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) and to assess its association with the clinical importance of the disease. METHODS F-fluorodeoxyglucose PET/CT scan was performed on 44 participants within 2 weeks before surgery. F-fluorodeoxyglucose uptake was quantified by calculating the SUVmax… CONTINUE READING
