Titel:
The predictive value of metabolic response to preoperative radiochemotherapy in locally advanced rectal cancer measured by PET/CT. 
Abstract:
BACKGROUND: To evaluate the value of positron emission tomography using fluorodeoxyglucose and computer tomography scan (FDG-PET/CT) for prediction of histopathological response of preoperative radiochemotherapy (RCTX) in patients with rectal carcinoma. METHODS: Thirty patients with uT3 rectal carcinoma were examined by FDG-PET/CT at baseline, 14 days after initiation, and after completion of preoperative RCTX. The FDG decreases seen with PET scanning from baseline to day 14 (early metabolic res...    »
