Reporting Guidance for PET/CT Imaging

share Share
A recent article published in the Journal of Nuclear Medicine provides guidance for reporting on oncologic 18F-FDG PET/CT imaging. 

The authors suggest that providing a high-quality PET/CT report is perhaps more challenging than for other imaging studies because of the complexity of this hybrid imaging modality. Their article discusses the essential elements of a concise and complete oncologic 18F-FDG PET/CT report: clinical history, technique/procedure, comparison studies, findings and impression. The article includes examples taken from routine clinical practice.
