SUV Max as Predictor of Outcome in Cervical Cancer
Cervical Cancer is staged clinically, not surgically. Patients in whom an extensive disease is identified are not usually eligible for surgery. PET-CT is used to support staging. However, some patients received surgery after staging and subsequently require radio/chemotherapy due to findings on operation.
This study will attempt to find a correlation between SUV-Max on PET-CT and subsequent outcomes i.e. need for adjuvant therapy.
