Monitoring liver tumor therapy with [18F]FDG positron emission tomography

J Comput Assist Tomogr. May-Jun 1990;14(3):370-4.

Abstract

Positron emission tomography (PET) with [18F]-2-flurodeoxy-glucose (FDG) can be utilized as a functional imaging modality for monitoring liver tumor therapy. We report three cases in which PET-FDG was more useful for this purpose than other imaging methods and tumor markers.
