Evidence-based indications for the use of PET-CT in the United Kingdom 2022

Date of next review: 

These guidelines mark the 30th anniversary of clinical positron emission tomography (PET) in the UK. Since its introduction into the UK clinical practice in 1992 by Professor Michael Maisey, PET, followed by positron emission tomography-computed tomography (PET-CT), has become a key multimodality molecular imaging technique in the assessment of a wide range of medical conditions.

Now in its fourth edition, this 2022 document provides updated indications with key references underpinning the use of fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) and non-FDG PET-CT tracers in malignant and non-malignant diseases in clinical practice.
