Whole-Body 18F-FDG PET in Induction Chemotherapeutic Response for Advanced NPC Patients
Recruitment status was: Recruiting
18F-FDG PET, a whole-body imaging technology based on glucose metabolism, can effectively detect subclinical and clinical therapeutic responses at stages that are earlier than those detected by conventional approaches.
We propose to conduct a prospective study to evaluate therapeutic response using 18F-FDG PET before and after induction chemotherapy for locally advanced NPC patients.
