Co-authors of a related article note that the Johns Hopkins researchers convincingly show that PET/CT may improve the evaluation and surveillance of pediatric malignancies. Written by Noah Federman and Stephen A. Feig, the invited perspective notes, In Hodgkins disease and pediatric sarcomas, PET/CT appears to be an important tool in the management of these diseases. However, the use of PET/CT in other pediatric malignancies has yet to be rigorously studied.

PET/CT in Evaluating Pediatric Malignancies: A Clinicians Perspective was co-written by Federman and Feig, both with Mattel Childrens Hospital, David Geffen School of Medicine, University of California in Los Angeles.

Also in the Journal of Nuclear Medicine, German researchers determined that PET/CT was significantly more accurate than PET alone for the detection and localization of lesions and improves staging of patients with Ewing tumor. The co-authors note, There are inherent advantages of PET/CT over PET in lesion detection, determination of malignancy and, therefore, overall staging for patients with Ewing tumor. Ewings tumor is a malignant bone tumor occurring in children and young adults.
