Titel:
Fluorodeoxyglucose-positron emission tomography in adenocarcinomas of the distal esophagus and cardia. 
Abstract:
Adenocarcinomas of the esophagogastric junction (AEG) are now recognized as a separate tumor entity with increasing incidence. The aim of the present study was to evaluate whether positron emission tomography (PET) using the glucose analog F-18-fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) can be used for metabolic characterization of this tumor type. Fifty-two patients with histologically proven, locally advanced AEG (distal esophagus, type I: n = 31; cardia, type II: n = 21) were studied by FDG-PET. None of the t...    »
