INTRODUCTION: Positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) involving 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) is widely used for systemic cancer and recurrence diagnosis. However, the differential diagnosis of benign and malignant gynaecological tumours according to FDG accumulation is unclear. This study aimed to investigate the intensity of FDG uptake/metabolic activity for the differential diagnosis of benign and malignant gynaecological tumours. METHODS: This study included seven patients with physiological phenomena, 34 with benign tumours, 13 with borderline malignant tumours and 119 with malignant tumours who underwent 18F-FDG PET/CT...

We report the case of a 55-year-old man who successfully underwent resection of a recurrence of ulcerative colitis(UC)- associated colon cancer located in the pancreatic body and left kidney. The patient had undergone an emergency laparotomy (total proctocolectomy with stapled ileal-pouch anal anastomosis)for the treatment of a descending colon cancer with retroperitoneal penetration associated with UC at the age of 50 years. At that time, histological examinations revealed a mucinous carcinoma that was classified as Stage II colon cancer...

A 65-year-old man was diagnosed with granulomatosis with polyangiitis (GPA) at the age of 47, when cytoplasmic anti-neutrophil cytoplasmic antibody (C-ANCA) serology was positive, and he had multiple nodular shadows in both lungs. He had been treated with prednisolone, cyclophosphamide (CPA) and plasma exchange. At the age of 64, a nodular shadow was newly detected in the right lower lung field and serum tumour marker increased. Subsequent positron emission tomography/computed tomography scan demonstrated accumulations of fluorodexyglucose (FDG) in the same area, mediastinum lymph nodes, thoracic wall, right iliac bone, and right retroperitoneum...

Use of [18F]FDG-PET in clinical breast cancer (BC) imaging is limited mainly due to insufficient expression levels of GLUT1 in up to 50% of all patients. Fructose-specific facilitative hexose transporter GLUT5 represents an alternative biomarker for PET imaging of hexose metabolism in BC. The goal of the present study was to compare uptake characteristics of selected hexose-based PET radiotracers in murine BC model EMT6. Uptake of 1-deoxy-1-[18F]fluoro-D-fructose (1-[18F]FDF), 6-deoxy-6-[18F]fluoro-D-fructose (6-[18F]FDF), 1-deoxy-1-[18F]fluoro-2,5-anhydro-mannitol (1-[18F]FDAM), 2-deoxy-2-[18F]fluoro-D-glucose (2-[18F]FDG) and 6-deoxy-6-[18F]fluoro-D-glucose (6-[18F]FDG) was studied in EMT6 cells, tumors and muscle and correlated to GLUT1 and GLUT5 expression levels...

BACKGROUND: L-[3-18F]-α-methyltyrosine (18F-FAMT) solely accumulates in tumor cells via an amino acid transport system. This selective uptake pattern results in a very high tumor-to-background ratio, enabling clear delineation of the tumor. The purpose of the present study was to assess the significance of 18F-FAMT PET, which shows little nonspecific uptake compared to 18F-flourodeoxyglucose position emission tomography (FDG PET) in esophageal cancer patients. METHODOLOGY: PET-CT studies with 18F-FAMT and 18F-FDG were performed as part of pretreatment work-up in 82 patients with histologically confirmed esophageal cancer...

PURPOSE: Growing evidence has demonstrated that aberrant expression of integrin α2β1 might contribute to the invasion, metastasis and drug resistance of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Thus, the integrin α2β1 targeting (68)Ga-DOTA-A2B1 tracer was validated in NSCLC in contrast to accumulation of the clinically used (18)F-FDG PET tracer to see if (68)Ga-DOTA-A2B1-PET imaging can offer a valuable and critical diagnostic imaging criterion for the identification of phenotypes of aggressive lung cancer...

In a mouse model of human lung cancer, intratumoral distribution between 3'-deoxy-3'-[(18)F] fluorothymidine ((18)F-FLT) and [(18)F] fluorodeoxyglucose ((18)F-FDG) was mutually exclusive. (18)F-FLT primarily accumulated in proliferating cancer cells, whereas (18)F-FDG accumulated in hypoxic cancer cells. The aim of the present study was to evaluate these preclinical findings in patients with lung cancer. A total of 55 patients with solitary pulmonary lesion were included in the present study. Patients underwent (18)F-FLT positron emission tomography-computed tomography (PET/CT) and (18)F-FDG PET/CT scan with a 3-day interval...

BACKGROUND: (18)F-FDG PET/CT could satisfactorily show pancreatic and extra-pancreatic lesions in AIP, which can be mistaken for pancreatic cancer (PC). This study aimed to identify (18)F-FDG PET/CT findings that might differentiate AIP from PC. METHODS: FDG-PET/CT findings of 26 AIP and 40 PC patients were reviewed. Pancreatic and extra-pancreatic lesions related findings, including maximum standardized uptake values (SUVmax) and patterns of FDG uptake, were identified and compared...

BACKGROUND: For esophageal cancer patients treated with neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy (nCRT), restaging using F‑18-fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) positron emission tomography computed tomography (PET-CT) following nCRT can detect interval metastases, including liver metastases, in almost 10% of patients. However, in clinical practice, focal FDG liver uptake, unrelated to liver metastases, is observed after chemoradiotherapy. This radiation-induced liver injury (RILI) can potentially lead to overstaging...

Current guidelines do not systematically recommend 18F-FDG PET/CT for breast cancer staging; and the recommendations and level of evidence supporting its use in different groups of patients vary among guidelines. This review summarizes the evidence about the role of 18F-FDG PET/CT in breast cancer staging and the therapeutic and prognostic impact accumulated in the last decade. Other related aspects, such as the association of metabolic information with biology and prognosis are considered and evidence-based recommendations for the use of 18F-FDG PET/CT in breast cancer staging are offered...

INTRODUCTION: Whole body PET CT is an important investigation tool in malignancy patients and helps in ascertaining the metabolic activity and exact stage of the disease. However, like any other investigation, false positive results do exist and certain diseases other than cancer may show increased uptake. Hence, a careful evaluation of PET CT and clinical correlation in malignancy patients is a must to accomplish the suitable treatment. METHODS: In this retrospective observational study, seven cases of cancer with concomitant tuberculosis were included...

Trastuzumab remains an important drug in the management of human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2) overexpressing breast cancer (BC). Several studies reported resistance mechanisms to trastuzumab, including impaired HER2-accessibility caused by mucin 4 (MUC4). Previously, we demonstrated an increase of Zirconium-89-radiolabeled-trastuzumab ((89)Zr-Trastuzumab) accumulation when MUC4-overexpressing BC-cells were challenged with the mucolytic drug N-Acetylcysteine (NAC). Hereby, using the same approach we investigated whether tumor exposure to NAC would also enhance trastuzumab-efficacy...

Renal metastasis of thyroid cancer is extremely rare. We report the case of a 62-year-old woman with Hürthle cell thyroid cancer (HCTC) with lungs, bones, and bilateral kidneys metastases. The renal metastatic lesions were clearly demonstrated by (131)I whole body scan (WBS) with SPECT/CT. However, they exhibited false-negative results in (18)F-FDG PET/CT, kidney ultrasonography, and contrast-enhanced CT scan. The findings imply that tumors have low glucose metabolism and are able to accumulate radioiodine, which is not commonly found in the relatively aggressive nature of HCTC...

Photodynamic therapy (PDT) is a novel treatment modality that is under intensive preclinical investigations for a variety of diseases, including cancer. Despite extensive studies in this area, selective and effective photodynamic agents that can specifically accumulate in tumors to reach a therapeutic concentration are limited. Although recent attempts have produced photosensitizers (PSs) complexed with various nanomaterials, the tedious preparation steps and poor tumor efficiency of therapy hamper their utilization...
