Uptake of 18F-FDG in acute aortic dissection: a determinant of unfavorable outcome.

UNLABELLED Imaging with (18)F-FDG PET/CT is able to reveal vascular inflammation, and several studies have shown that increased (18)F-FDG uptake in carotid artery plaques can qualify the degree of atherosclerotic inflammation. However, clinical assessment of acute aortic dissection (AAD) by PET/CT remains largely unexplored. This study aimed to investigate… CONTINUE READING
