Value of PET/CT Imaging in the Diagnosis of Permanent Central Venous Catheters Infection
Prospective Study on the Usefulness and Diagnostic Value of F-18-FDG PET/CT in the Diagnosis of Permanent Central Venous Catheters Infection
The study hypothesis is that F-18-FDG PET/CT and microcalorimetry might have a diagnostic value in the detection of permanent central venous catheters (PCVC) infection when conventional means of PCVC infection detection are non-conclusive.
Permanent central venous catheters are frequently infected and therefore need surgical removal. When a clear diagnostic for infection cannot be defined, catheter removal might be at risk for the patient, for the therapeutic follow-up and in terms of costs. PET/CT and microcalorimetry might help giving conclusive diagnostic of catheter infection.

Non-Probability Sample
Patients with pathology requiring permanent central venous catheter will be selected mainly from nephrology and oncology departments . They might also be selected from other deparments.
Infection
