PET imaging in the thorax


Journal Article

Positron emission tomography (PET) is an important imaging modality for the evaluation and management of thoracic abnormalities. It provides not only anatomic but physiologic information that supplements conventional radiologic imaging. While PET with 18F-2-deoxy-D-glucose cannot uniformly provide all the requisite information for patient evaluation, it provides a new model and direction for functional imaging.
