Integrated positron-emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) with 2-[ 18 F]-fluoro-2-deoxy- d- glucose (FDG) has revolutionized oncological imaging in recent years and now has a firmly established role in a variety of tumour types. There have been simultaneous step-wise advances in scanner technology, which are yet to be exploited to their full potential in clinical practice. This article will review these technological developments and explore how refinements in imaging protocols can fu...

Hybrid imaging with combined positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) plays an important role in the staging and management of a wide variety of solid tumours. However, its use in the evaluation of musculoskeletal malignancy has not yet entered routine clinical practice. Cross-sectional imaging with magnetic resonance imaging (MR) and computed tomography have well-established roles but there is increasing evidence for the selective use of PET/CT in the management of these patien...

1778 www.thelancet.com May 22, 2010 a unique means of collecting relevant maternal mortality data), the main contributor to maternal mortality is indirect causes in the UK, hypertensive disorders in the Netherlands, and haemorrhage in France. Although thromboembolism con stitutes an important issue in pregnancy, it is important to keep in mind the actual pattern of causes of maternal mortality, in order to prioritise prevention strategies.

Aim To evaluate the accuracy of ultrasound and parathyroid scintigraphy using single photon-emission computed tomography/computed tomography (SPECT/CT) for the preoperative localization of solitary parathyroid adenomas in patients with primary hyperparathyroidism who would be suitable for minimally invasive parathyroid surgery. Materials and methods Retrospective study of 63 consecutive patients with biochemical evidence of primary hyperparathyroidism referred for preoperative localization of pa...

Integrated positron emission tomography/CT (PET/CT) with 2-[ 18 F]fluoro-2-deoxy-d-glucose (FDG) is a hybrid imaging modality which has recently become established in the staging, restaging and therapy response assessment of oncology patients. FDG PET/CT has several recognised applications in colorectal cancer (CRC) imaging including preoperative evaluation of apparently limited metastatic disease, detection of disease recurrence, clarification of equivocal lesions at initial staging, investigat...

The emergence of hybrid imaging, combining anatomical computed tomography (CT) and functional scintigraphic imaging has increased the armoury of techniques available to image disease. Single photon emission computed tomography/CT (SPECT/CT) is a dual modality technique which increases the sensitivity and specificity of existing radionuclide imaging and helps characterise equivocal lesions detected by other imaging methods. In addition to the many established clinical applications for SPECT/CT, t...

Summary Purpose To retrospectively evaluate the clinical impact of FDG PET–CT on the management pathway of patients with lung cancer. Patients and methods One hundred and sixty-one patients with suspected lung cancer undergoing FDG PET–CT during the study period were analyzed. Before PET–CT, lung cancer MDT recorded scan indication, conventional clinical stage, and proposed treatment plan. The accuracy of integrated PET–CT compared with stand alone CT in preoperative staging of lung cancer was e...
