Abstract

Objectives: We aimed to analyze the contribution of F-18-fluorodeoxyglucosepositron emission tomography/computed tomography (FDG PET/CT) imaging to the diagnosis and management of pancreatic cancer compared with multidetector row computed tomography (MDCT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS).
