Gastric cancers with microsatellite instability exhibit high fluorodeoxyglucose uptake on positron emission tomography
Gastric Cancer, 06/22/2012
Chung HW et al. – The presence of microsatellite instability (MSI) is related to FDG uptake in gastric cancer. Care should be taken with microsatellite stable (MSS) gastric cancers, because they show lower SUVmax on positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) imaging than MSI gastric cancers.
