AIMS AND BACKGROUND To study the influence of blood glucose levels on the clinical reliability of positron emission tomography (PET) with [18F]-2-fluoro-2-deoxy-D-glucose (FDG) in the detection of liver metastases from colorectal carcinomas and in the analysis of tumor uptake of FDG. METHODS After having given their informed consent, 8 patients with 20 liver metastases (mean size, 31.5 mm; range, 10-75 mm) detected by means of CT were submitted to a first FDG-PET examination under fasting… CONTINUE READING
