Title:
Respective performance of 18F-FDG PET and radiolabeled leukocyte scintigraphy for the diagnosis of prosthetic valve endocarditis. 
Abstract:
Echocardiography plays a key role in the diagnosis of infective endocarditis (IE) but can be inconclusive in patients in whom prosthetic valve endocarditis (PVE) is suspected. The incremental diagnostic value of (18)F-FDG PET and radiolabeled leukocyte scintigraphy in IE patients has already been reported. The aim of this study was to compare the respective performance of (18)F-FDG PET and leukocyte scintigraphy for the diagnosis of PVE in 39 patients.(18)F-FDG PET and leukocyte scintigraphy wer...    »
