| PET CT Guidelines as produced by the Radiological Society of South Africa (v2008.1) |
Combined PET/CT has redefined the gold standard for oncologic imaging.
Despite superb resolution of MDCT and MRI, some malignancies may go undetected. Poor sensitivity for early disease is a major shortcoming, as is the ability to predicttreatment response at an early stage. These shortcomings also apply to the accurateevaluation of residual disease or early detection of recurrent disease and subsequentrestaging of tumours.
