: The emergence of hybrid imaging, combining anatomical computed tomography (CT) and functional single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT), has greatly expanded the armoury available to image disease. Integrated SPECT-CT is a dual-modality technique, which improves the sensitivity and specificity of existing radionuclide studies and enables characterization of equivocal findings detected by conventional imaging. There is a wide range of established and emerging clinical applications for ...

We present a case of granulomatous prostatitis that presented in a rare way as an incidentally discovered focus of increased FDG activity within the prostate on PET-CT in a patient who had previously undergone intravesical bacille Calmette-Guerin treatment for bladder cancer. FDG uptake is commonly discovered in organs distant from the region of primary interest on PET-CT and so it is important to be aware of the potential causes of this.

1307 Objectives To review the impact of FDG PET-CT in the management pathway of patients with potentially operable gallbladder carcinoma. Methods Consecutive patients with gallbladder carcinoma undergoing FDG PET-CT at a tertiary referral centre between January 2008 and October 2011 were analyzed. Findings on PET-CT were compared to conventional imaging, with histological or clinico-radiological validation. Impact on patient management was evaluated using information from clinico-radiological da...
1044 Learning Objectives 1. To review the role of FDG PET-CT in suspected infection and inflammation. 2. To illustrate the range of conditions in which PET-CT can add value in patient management. FDG PET-CT can be used to investigate possible inflammation or infection in a variety of clinical situations. The technique often has a complementary role when there is clinical uncertainty or equivocal findings on other imaging modalities. Established applications include the assessment of patients wit...
Introduction. To determine the value of a FDG-PET-CT scan in patients with locally advanced head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) prior to chemoradiotherapy. Materials and Methods. Consecutive patients with stage III or IV HNSCC who had undergone a staging FDG-PET-CT scan prior to chemoradiotherapy between August 2008 and April 2011 were included. Clinical details and conventional imaging (CT and/or MRI) were, retrospectively, reviewed, a TNM stage was assigned, and levels of cervical ly...

Recent treatment advances now allow a realistic chance of cure in selected patients with metastatic colorectal carcinoma (CRC). Accurate pre-treatment staging is crucial to ensure appropriate management by identification of patients with more advanced disease who will not benefit from surgery. 18Fluorine 2-fluoro-2-deoxy-d-glucose positron emission tomography–computed tomography (PET–CT) has a firmly established role in staging, restaging, and recurrence detection of a range of tumors. This arti...
