Utility of FDG PET/CT in IgG4-related systemic disease
Clinical Radiology, 03/23/2012Nakatani K et al.
FDG PET/CT is likely to be only one component of the management strategy, and clinical, laboratory, imaging and histological findings are crucial in the overall diagnosis of the condition. At present FDG PET/CT does not have a well–established role in the assessment of patients with IgG4–related systemic disease (IgG4–RSD) and future prospective studies are required to define the cost–effectiveness and clinical impact in this patient group more accurately.
