Health Technology Assessment of PET (Positron Emission Tomography): A Systematic Review

Laupacis A, Paszat L, Hodgson D, Benk V. April 2004

Introduced in 2001, the ICES report Health Technology Assessment of PET presented an extensive review of relevant literature from 1975 to 2000 to determine the potential use of PET scanning in diagnosing certain types of cancer and other diseases.

Between February 2003 and April 2004, this report was regularly updated with a review of the most recent literature on the clinical applications of PET among six commonly occurring categories of cancer: carcinoma of the lung, colorectal carcinoma, squamous carcinoma of the head and neck, carcinoma of the breast, malignant lymphoma, and malignant melanoma
