FDG PET and PET/CT: EANM procedure guidelines for tumour PET imaging: version 1.0

Eur J Nucl Med Mol Imaging. 2010 Jan;37(1):181-200. doi: 10.1007/s00259-009-1297-4.


The aim of this guideline is to provide a minimum standard for the acquisition and interpretation of PET and PET/CT scans with [18F]-fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG). This guideline will therefore address general information about[18F]-fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) positron emission tomography-computed tomography (PET/CT) and is provided to help the physician and physicist to assist to carrying out,interpret, and document quantitative FDG PET/CT examinations,but will concentrate on the optimisation of diagnostic quality and quantitative information.
