Preoperative PET Scans Improve Management of Gynecologic Cancer

Preoperative PET scanning among patients with high-risk, clinical stage 1 endometrial cancer (EC) may improve surgical management, especially for patients with extensive extra-uterine disease or nodal metastases beyond nodal basins, according to a study.
Gregory Sutton, MD, and colleagues conducted a single-center study of 144 patients treated between March 2017 and June 2021. They performed preoperative scans based on high-risk histology (serous, clear cell, carcinosarcoma, or high-grade endometrioid adenocarcinoma) or age (≥70) regardless of histology.
