Özet

Background PET-CT is important for evaluating the cancer stage preoperatively. In patients with locally advanced disease, who are candidates for curative treatment modalities following computed tomography (CT) and ultrasonography evaluation, PET-CT can show distant metastases and spare patients unnecessary surgical interventions. We aimed to evaluate the contribution of PET-CT scans compared to conventional imaging studies on the change of treatment plan in patients with locally advanced esophagogastric cancer from neoadjuvant to palliative setting.
