Acta Oncologica - summary - Standardized FDG uptake as a prognostic variable and as a predictor of incomplete cytoreduction in primary advanced ovaria
Discussion. FDG uptake (SUVmax) in the primary tumor of patients with advanced ovarian cancer was not a prognostic variable and the FDG uptake did not predict complete cytoreduction after primary surgery. Future prospective clinical trials will need to clarify if other PET tracers can serve as prognostic variables in ovarian cancer.
