New method is found for accurate diagnosis of gall bladder cancer, 1 of the most deadly
Date:10/14/2010

This press release is available in Spanish.

Researchers a the University of Granada and the Department of Nuclear Medicine, Hospital Virgen de las Nieves at Granada found that the metabolic imaging diagnosis technique based on the analysis of a structural analog of glucose labeled with a positron-emitting compound (18F) allows early diagnosis of gall bladder cancer, a relatively rare disease with high mortality rates among most patients suffering from it.

For the purpose of this study, 62 patients were subjected to this scanning method, which represents the largest sample of patients with gall bladder cancer ever studied by applying this type of technology called FDG positron emission tomography. The study reported excellent results, significantly better than other structural imaging methods, and enabled more accurate and appropriate diagnosis and treatment of patients, which allows to avoid unnecessary procedures.

This study was conducted by Sc.D Carlos Ramos Font and directed by professors Nicols Olea Serrano (UGR), Jos Manuel Llamas Elvira (UGR and Department of Nuclear Medicine, Hospital Virgen de las Nieves and Manuel Gmez Ro (Department of Nuclear Medicine, Hospital Virgen de las Nieves).

Early Diagnosis Is Essential

The high mortality rate among patients with gall bladder cancer depends heavily on the lack of clinical data enabling early diagnosis of this type of tumors. This fact determines the survival of this type of patients. At the moment of establishing a diagnosis, an accurate staging will allow to chose the most appropriate treatment, as well as to optimize the use of the resources available. Imaging diagnosis of this pathology is essentially based on morphological techniques (echography, X-ray computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging).
