A Pilot C11-Choline PET-CT Imaging Study in Patients With Locally Advanced Esophageal Cancer
- Newly diagnosed or recurrent patients with locally advanced esophageal cancer with
either squamous or adenocarcinoma histology.
- Ability to tolerate PET imaging
- Prior malignancy is allowed, but the expectation of survival must be that beyond that
expected for patients with locally advanced esophageal cancer.
- Pregnant or lactating females are not eligible for this pilot study.
- Patients having received chemotherapy in the 3 months prior to registration for any
- Patients with metastatic disease requiring chemoradiation for palliation are not
