SUV Max as Predictor of Outcome in Cervical Cancer

This study has been completed.

Rambam Health Care Campus Identifier:
First received: November 23, 2010
Last updated: December 15, 2010
Last verified: November 2010

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.

Cervical Cancer Radiation: Radiotherapy

Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Observational Model: Case-Only
Time Perspective: Retrospective
Official Title: A Study to Evaluate the Value of SUV-Max in PET-FDG in Predicting Outcome of Surgery Vis a Vis Need for Radiotherapy
