Abstract

Positron Emission Tomography (PET) Response Criteria in Solid Tumors (PERCIST 1.0) describes in detail methods for controlling the quality of fluorine 18 fluorodeoxyglucose PET imaging conditions to ensure the comparability of PET images from different time points to allow quantitative expression of the changes in PET measurements and assessment of overall treatment response in PET studies. The steps for actual application of PERCIST are summarized. Several issues from PERCIST 1.0 that appear to require clarification, such as measurement of size and definition of unequivocal progression, also are addressed.
