Résumé : The utility of positron emission tomography-computed tomography has increasingly been studied during the last years. Positron emission tomography-computed tomography offers a holistic approach of cancer diagnosis as it can integrate structural, functional, metabolic, and molecular information of tumour. The technique offers three-dimensional, high-resolution, whole body, and quantitative imaging. 18F-Fluoro-2-deoxy-D-glucose still remains the only tracer widely available. Other tracers have been designed for assessment of proliferation, amino acid uptake, and hypoxia.
