18-FDG is accumulated in cancer cells. It has been proven useful to image a variety of tumors in conjunction with whole-body positron emission tomography. This review details somes of the indications of PET at various stages of the cancerous process : differential diagnosis, preoperative staging, diagnosis of residual or recurrent disease as well as follow-up of therapy. Consideration of several potential improvements in clinical PET and of the need for careful patients selection conclude this review. [less ▲]

Positron emission tomography (PET) is now primarily used in oncological indication owing to the successful application of fluorine-18 fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) in an increasing number of clinical indications at different stages of diagnosis, and for staging and follow-up. This review first considers the biological characteristics of FDG and then discusses methodological considerations regarding its use. Clinical indications are considered, and the results achieved in respect of various organs and tumour types are reviewed in depth. The review concludes with a brief consideration of the ways in which clinical PET might be improved. [less ▲]
