What is the utility of FDG PET for disease restaging of cancer patients?

FDG PET has high diagnostic accuracy for the early detection of recurrent tumor, even when no other symptoms or signs of tumor recurrence are present, leading to improved clinical outcomes. Moreover, it allows for precise spatial localization of the sites of tumor recurrence, which determines whether locoregional salvage therapies or systematic therapies are appropriate.
