Whole-body PET/CT scan appears useful for determining tumor stage

ights, only to return a few moments later with a rapid diagnosis and a specific treatment plan, does not seem as far away as once thought. Based on the article by Antoch and colleagues in this issue of THE JOURNAL, it appears that the wheels of progress already have been set in motion to realize this futuristic diagnostic approach," they write.

"The article by Antoch et al is the first comparative study of 2 relatively new imaging modalities, PET/CT and whole-body MRI. For most clinicians accustomed to step-by-step or multimodality approaches, introduction of PET/CT or whole-body MRI as the first line of investigation would lead to significant changes in the management of patients with cancer. While these results are intriguing, additional studies are needed to establish the role of whole-body imaging for tumor staging in oncology practice," the editorialists conclude.
