Aim To evaluate the impact of staging FDG PET-CT on the initial management of patients with locally advanced cervical carcinoma (LACC) and any prognostic variables predicting survival. Materials and methods Retrospective analysis of consecutive patients undergoing FDG PET-CT for staging of LACC in a single tertiary referral centre, between April 2008 and August 2011. Comparison was made between MRI and PET-CT findings and any subsequent impact on treatment intent or radiotherapy planning was eva...

TO THE EDITOR: We read with great interest the recent article by Marcus et al. ([1][1]). The objective of this retrospective study on 214 patients with head and neck squamous cell carcinoma was to validate qualitative interpretation criteria for 18F-FDG PET/CT assessment of response after

Background Management of solitary pulmonary nodules (SPNs) depends critically on the pre-test probability of malignancy. Several quantitative prediction models have been developed using clinical and radiological criteria. Three models include CT criteria (Mayo, Veterans Association, Brock University) with a fourth model (Herder) incorporating FDG avidity on CT-PET scan in addition. These models have not been validated in a UK population, and the current study aimed to compare their performance i...

Recent and ongoing shortages in reactor-based supplies of molybdenum-99 for hospital production of the important medical radioisotope Technetium-99m have prompted the re-examination of the alternative production methods using conventional and laser-based particle accelerators. At present the UK has no domestic source of molybdenum99 and relies exclusively on overseas supply; the National Health Service, with professional partners, is therefore examining the options for domestic production of mol...

Noninvasive imaging biomarkers readily assessed with PET/CT or MR imaging provide functional data that are absent from conventional anatomic imaging and that can be used to guide tailored treatment approaches in patients with squamous cell carcinomas of the head and neck.

Neuroendocrine tumours (NETs) of the head and neck are rare neoplasms and can be of epithelial or non-epithelial differentiation. Although the natural history of NETs is variable, it is crucial to establish an early diagnosis of these tumours as they can be potentially curable. Conventional anatomical imaging and functional imaging using radionuclide scintigraphy and positron emission tomography/computed tomography can be complementary for the diagnosis, staging and monitoring of treatment respo...

Objectives To assess the clinical impact of 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography-computed tomography (FDG PET-CT) compared with contrast-enhanced computed tomography (CECT) in patients referred via the Specialist Skin Cancer Multidisciplinary Team (SSMDT) with recurrent stage III/IV malignant melanoma (MM).

Aims and Objectives : To determine whether pre-treatment FDG PET-CTderived tumour SUVmax ,tumour and lymph node staging and other factors are predictors of survival in patients with NSCLC Methods 136 patients with NSCLC [adenocarcinoma 39%,squamous 37%, Large cell 17%,Undifferentiated 6%] who underwent staging FDG PET-CT before treatment were identified .Median followup 635 days. Tumour and nodal staging at PET-CT & staging CT, SUVmax of primary tumour, factors like age, gender, ALT, tumour type...
