    Abstract. [[sup 18]F]-2-fluoro-2-deoxy-o-glucose positron emission tomography (FDG PET) is considered a valuable tool in the diagnosis and staging of cancer. In addition, it seems promising as a technique to monitor response to therapy. Progress is hampered, however, by the fact that various...
