Effects of a proton pump inhibitor on the physiological accumulation of fluoro-2-deoxy-d-glucose (FDG) in FDG-positron emission tomography
Surgery Today, 08/02/2012
Domeki Y et al. – The oral administration of a proton pump inhibitor (PPI) was effective for reducing the physiological accumulation of the FDG in the alimentary tract. However, based on the error associated with SUVmax measurement, a quantitative evaluation should therefore be combined with the visual evaluation.
