Fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography (18F-FDG-PET/CT) is the imaging method of choice in sarcoma patients. PET may help in diagnosis, grading, staging, biopsy guidance, monitoring response to therapy, restaging for recurrence, and prognosis. 18F-FDG-PET/MRI combines the higher tissue contrast of MRI in the study of soft-tissue lesions and the peculiarities of PET imaging that allow the characterization of tissues. The use of 18F-FDG-PET/MRI in these patients has reduces the radiation dose, which is of great importance, particularly in children. Data support the routine use of 18F-FDG-PET either using CT or MRI in patients with sarcoma.

Abstract

Fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography (18F-FDG-PET/CT) is the imaging method of choice in sarcoma patients. PET may help in diagnosis, grading, staging, biopsy guidance, monitoring response to therapy, restaging for recurrence, and prognosis. 18F-FDG-PET/MRI combines the higher tissue contrast of MRI in the study of soft-tissue lesions and the peculiarities of PET imaging that allow the characterization of tissues. The use of 18F-FDG-PET/MRI in these patients has reduces the radiation dose, which is of great importance, particularly in children. Data support the routine use of 18F-FDG-PET either using CT or MRI in patients with sarcoma.
