Does the algorithms process of post processing in imaging PET replace liver biopsy to determine the stage of differentiation of cells in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC)?]
The positron emission tomography (PET) is a tool reference in
routine clinical oncology. His applications has concerned the
management and therapeutic monitoring, identification and
definition of targets for radiotherapy, and quantification. The
most frequently radiotracer's used are fluo-deoxyglucose(FDG)
and Fluo-choline (18F-choline).
In addition to the functional information, PET with algorithms of
post treatment could give information on the stage of cell
differentiation in HCC.
The objective is to determine the stage of cell differentiation in
HCC on imaging PET. We have apply the process of imaging
post treatment on the image of PET Choline and PET FDG of
patient whose stage of cell differentiation is known at histology.
The same result as histology were found. The volume of HCC
lesions detected using 18F-FDG was slightly better than that
using 18F-choline. The capacity of these two radiotracers to
detect rate of fixation of HCC depend of the type of lesion.
This combination could be a new tool which can substitute the
liver biopsy if there are not indicated.
