Abstract/OtherAbstract:
PET/CT provides a comprehensive staging, post-therapeutic surveillance, and outcome prognosis of malignant pleural mesothelioma based on its hypermetabolic behavior. This ability of PET may allow the monitoring, prediction, and detection of uncommon distant gastrointestinal clinical manifestations of this disease. The authors present a case of PET/CT imaging of pleural mesothelioma disseminating to the abdomen and pelvis, inducing an incarcerated inguinal hernia.
