New York, New York 10065


Purpose:

We hypothesize that 18FDG Positron Emission Tomography (FDG PET) imaging, carried out after the first cycle of chemotherapy, will identify responders, thus permitting early termination of potential toxic therapy in non- responders leading to a significant decrease in morbidity and cost. The value of PET imaging as an early predictor of response to chemotherapy has been shown in other cancers.
