Double duty: Split-dose FDG PET/CT guides and confirms tumor ablation

 Kathy Fay Mahdoubi in an April 24th report in Health Imaging, covers a method reported on in Radiology this month.  She writes, “A two-step method of F-18 FDG dosing during guided PET/CT tumor ablation procedures has been found to improve post-treatment monitoring without compromising on localization and also provides an opportunity to reintervene while patients are still on the table, according to a study published online April 5 in Radiology.”
