Brief Summary:
18F-fluorodeoxyglucose Positron Emission Tomography (FDG-PET) Imaging has been extensively used in the evaluation of various malignancies and is rapidly being recognized as a mandatory investigations. 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose Positron Emission Tomography (FDG-PET) Imaging has also been tried in cervical cancers with excellent results for detection of both pelvic and extra-pelvic disease in terms of sensitivity and specificity. Till date, PET Imaging has been reported to have highest sensitivity and specificity for detection of disease and treatment failures compared to other non-invasive investigations available. Treatment decisions (Localized RT Vs Extended RT) will be according to the results of PET Scans. The treatment response, outcome and follow-up will be labelled according to the PET Scan results and will be directed for treatment accordingly.
