The diagnostic and prognostic value of 18F-FDG PET/CT in the initial assessment of high-grade bone and soft tissue sarcoma. A retrospective study of 89 patients
European Journal of Nuclear Medicine & Molecular Imaging, 06/21/2012
Fuglo HM et al. – FDG PET/CT for the initial assessment of patients with high–grade bone sarcomas (BS) or soft tissue sarcomas (STS) was feasible with high sensitivity (SE) and specificity (SP), but in those with lymph node metastases the predictive value (PV) of a positive test was low. The SUVmax of the primary tumour was a strong prognostic factor for survival.
