Nuclear Principles of Tumor Detection

  • U. Büll


The goals of diagnostic procedures in oncology are tumor detection and/or tumor evaluation. This differentiation (detection, evaluation) is helpful when classifying the results of a procedure: a tumor may be detected by one method but evaluated according to its type by a second method, or one method may be powerful enough to yield both results. These should lead to a type-specific tumor diagnosis which is the final goal of tumor-seeking procedures. The detection of metastases is of additional help within this frame.
