Research output: Contribution to journal/Conference contribution in journal/Contribution to newspaperJournal articleResearchpeer-review

Colorectal cancer is a common cancer in the Nordic countries and 50% of the patients develop liver metastases. Liver resection may result in long term survival. Proper staging is therefore essential and CT is the standard imaging modality. We examined whether additional FDG-PET improves therapeutic management of patients with colorectal liver metastases.
