Specific features to differentiate Giant cell arteritis aortitis from aortic atheroma using FDG-PET/CT
AbstractAortic wall 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG)-uptake does not allow differentiation of aortitis from atheroma, which is problematic in clinical practice for diagnosing large vessel vasculitis giant-cell arteritis (GCA) in elderly patients. The purpose of this study was to compare the FDG uptake characteristics of GCA aortitis and aortic atheroma using positron emission tomography/FDG computed tomography (FDG-PET/CT). This study compared FDG aortic uptake between patients with GCA aortitisdoi:10.1038/s41598-021-96923-2 pmid:34462502 fatcat:r5uhluzwt5hfdb6zzehhvjctyq
