Positron emission tomography/computed tomography in follow-up programmes for patients with colorectal cancer
The current follow-up programmes for patients with colorectal cancer (CRC) after curative surgery do not include 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose-positron emission tomography (PET). Several small studies on selected patient populations indicate a high sensitivity of PET/computed tomography (CT) on visualizing relapse in patients with CRC after curative surgery. Therefore, PET/CT could probably be valuable in patients with unexplained increase in carcinoembryonic antigen level or a clinical suspicion of relapse, but PET/CT is not recommended as a standard in follow-up after CRC.
