abstract

  • In this small series response measurement by FDG-PET did not always correlate with response measurement by CT. A greater decrease in metabolic activity as compared with size was seen in all patients. Further studies are needed to define the role of FDG-PET in assessing early response of DSRCT to chemotherapy.
