FDG-PET imaging clearly predicts lung cancer patients' response to chemotherapy

... Our study demonstrates that patients who respond to chemotherapy can be identified early in the course of their treatment, and these patients will generally exhibit prolonged overall survival, explained Claude Nahmias, professor of radiology and medicine at the University of Tennessee Medical Center in Knoxville....

Journal of Nuclear Medicine publishes NCI-sponsored guidelines for using FDG PET

Reston, Va.--Publication of consensus recommendations for the use of positron emission tomography (PET) imaging--with the radiotracer fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG)--in National Cancer Institute trials will go a long way in helping physicians and scientists determine ways to manage cancer and promote drug development in the future. The recommendations, published in the June issue of the Journal of Nuc...

FDG PET takes its place as a valuable tool in diagnosing fevers of unknown origin

SAN DIEGO, Calif.--By providing early diagnosis of fevers of unknown origin in patients, positron emission tomography (PET)--with the radiotracer fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG)--eliminates the need for additional exhaustive and invasive tests, say researchers from university and community hospitals in the Netherlands. Their findings were presented during SNM's 53rd Annual Meeting June 37 in San Diego.....

No bones about it: FDG PET successful in difficult-to-detect chronic osteomyelitis

SAN DIEGO, Calif.--Diagnosing chronic osteomyelitis--a common, serious and often incapacitating infection of bone and bone marrow--in children and adults is often difficult, posing a challenge to physicians. Using positron emission tomography (PET)--with the radiotracer fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG)--"is a highly effective imaging method for determining the presence or absence of chronic osteomyelitis...

Expert system developed to enhance diagnostic accuracy of Alzheimer's disease with FDG PET scans

TORONTO, Canada--German scientists developed a computer program that enhances the diagnostic accuracy of positron emission tomography (PET) scans with Alzheimer's patients, opening the door for earlier treatment of this progressive brain disorder. Details of their findings were provided at the Society of Nuclear Medicine's 52nd Annual Meeting in Toronto....... "Positron emission tomography (PET)...
