PET / Enhanced CT Scan Performance in Cancer (Positron Emission Tomography Combined With Computed Tomography or Vascular Contrast CT Scan). COMBI TEP Study
We would like to demonstrate that diagnosis performance of PET/CT scan without and with
contrast agent (COMBI TEP), are equivalent or better than those of PET/ non enhanced CT scan
(PET scan) associated with an enhanced CT scan. This research project is a pilot study given
the few available data concerning this imaging exam reproducibility. This study allows us to
assess the feasibility of such a large-scale study, but also to evaluate COMBI TEP
performance. From these estimates, we can then consider a comparative study to evaluate the
performance of COMBI PET.
This study is a prospective single center study.
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Diagnostic
Diagnostic performance of the combination PET / enhanced CT scan (COMBI PET)
Performance will be evaluated in terms of the inter-pairs interpretation reproducibility, one pair being defined by the combination of one nuclear physician and one radiologist.
