[Indications for positron emission tomography (pet): a brief update]
Record ID 32011000448
Authors' objectives: The purpose of this report is to provide an initial response to various questions concerning the expansion of the clinical indications for positronemission tomography (PET) and PET-CT in oncology and for other types of diseases with regard to the current practice in Quebec
Authors' recomendations: The range of new or expanded indications for PET in relation to those currently accepted in Québec remains fairly limited. However, PET is a rapidly evolving technology, and its combined use with other technologies such as magnetic resonance imaging, is opening development prospects for new clinical applications.
