Similar survival seen for PET-CT-guided surveillance and planned neck dissection, but fewer operations.
Positron emission tomography (PET) imaging may offer a superior method of imaging for metastatic prostate cancer.
PET deemed safe for use after two cycles of BEACOPPesc chemotherapy for advanced stage Hodgkin lymphoma, according to a recent study.
From 1998 to 2007, more PET scans for married, non-black, <80-year-old patients with lung cancer were performed.
Advances in imaging for breast cancer screening, diagnosis, and response assessment are more promising now than ever before.
F-18-FDG PET more sensitive, equally specific to CT for assessing regional lymph node involvement.
Doctors may be able to use pretreatment PET imaging to better fight aggressive cancers, according to a study presented at the 2010 Multidisciplinary Head and Neck Cancer Symposium in Chandler, Arizona.
