Abstract

Gynecological cancers as a group comprise approximately 11% of female cancer (1). In the United States, it is estimated that nearly 78,290 women will be diagnosed in 2007 with gynecological cancers and that approximately 28,000 women will die as a result of these cancers (accounting for 10% of all cancer-related deaths in women). Gynecological cancers are typically diagnosed by history, physical examination, and selected imaging studies. There has been an increasing use of PET using 18, F-fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) for staging and restaging of these cancers, as well as for assessing response to therapy (2).
