A prospective evaluation of the utility of 2-deoxy-2-[18F]fluoro-D-glucose positron emission tomography and computed tomography in staging locally advanced gastric cancer
Cancer,  Clinical Article

Smyth E et al. – [18F]fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography (FDG–PET)/computed tomography (CT) identifies occult metastatic lesions in approximately 10% of patients with locally advanced gastric cancer. Because of reduced morbidity from fewer futile surgeries and lower patient care costs, PET/CT should be considered as a component of the standard staging algorithm for localized gastric cancer.
