68Gallium-Arginine-Glycine-Aspartic Acid and 18F-Fluorodeoxyglucose Positron Emission Tomography/Computed Tomography in Chondroblastic Osteosarcoma of the Skull

68Gallium-Arginine-Glycine-Aspartic Acid and 18F-Fluorodeoxyglucose Positron Emission... We report the case of a 32 year-old male with Chondroblastic Osteosarcoma of the skull, which was imaged with both 18[F]fluorodeoxyglucose (18F-FDG) positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) and 68Gallium-arginine-glycine-aspartic acid (68Ga-RGD) PET/CT. The 18F-FDG PET/CT did not demonstrate the tumour, whereas the 68Ga-RGD PET/CT clearly depicted a left-sided frontal tumour. 68Ga-RGD PET/CT may be a clinically useful imaging modality for early detection of recurrent osteosarcoma, considering the limitations of 18F-FDG PET in a setting of low glycolytic activity. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging Springer Journals

Abstract

We report the case of a 32 year-old male with Chondroblastic Osteosarcoma of the skull, which was imaged with both 18[F]fluorodeoxyglucose (18F-FDG) positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) and 68Gallium-arginine-glycine-aspartic acid (68Ga-RGD) PET/CT. The 18F-FDG PET/CT did not demonstrate the tumour, whereas the 68Ga-RGD PET/CT clearly depicted a left-sided frontal tumour. 68Ga-RGD PET/CT may be a clinically useful imaging modality for early detection of recurrent osteosarcoma, considering the limitations of 18F-FDG PET in a setting of low glycolytic activity.
