PET Scans Using FDG Are Very Effective at Detecting Recurrent Colon Cancer

In the January issue of the International Journal of Cancer, chinese researchers report that numerous studies indicate that PET scanning using fluor-18-deoxyglucose (FDG) is highly effective in the diagnosis of recurrent colon cancer.  They analyzed 27 different studies to come to this conclusion.

It is important to find and diagnose colon cancer at an early stage when it is curable.  In addition to PET scans, colonoscopy and other tests are very good at diagnosing colon cancer when it is curable.
