Summary Value of FDG-PET scan before treatment of liver metastases from colorectal cancer Ugeskr Læger 2008;170(16):1364-1366 In this consecutive, prospective study, the value of an FDG-PET scan acquired before treatment of liver metastases from colorectal cancer was tested in 54 patients. In 81% of the cases, PET findings were in concordance with CT.
