Abstract

Fluorine-18 labeled deoxyglucose positron-emission tomography (FDG-PET) applications in oncology include the differential diagnosis of chest masses and single pulmonary nodules. However, FDG is not tumor-specific; rather, it also accumulates in inflammatory processes. This study was performed to identify image parameters that would improve the specificity of PET.
