The efficiency of [18F]FDG PET/CT using volume-based indices was evaluated to assess the disease activity and response to therapy in patients with immunoglobulin G4-related disease (IgG4-RD). A total of 17 patients with IgG4-RD were examined with [18F]FDG PET/CT before and during treatment. The lesion boundary was determined using a fixed threshold of standardized uptake value (SUV) ≥ 2.5. The highest maximum SUV (SUVmax) among all affected lesions was calculated for individual patients. We summ...

Muscle enzymes are the major noninvasive diagnostic parameters useful in polymyositis/dermatomyositis (PM/DM). Few studies have yet correlated findings on 18F-FDG PET with disease activity in patients with PM/DM. We evaluated 18F-FDG muscle uptake in patients with PM/DM compared with non-muscular diseases and correlated the results with serum muscle enzymes. A total of 28 patients with untreated PM/DM and 28 control patients with non-muscular diseases were examined with 18F-FDG PET/CT. 18F-FDG u...
