Abstract

Objective: To compare the diagnostic role of Florine-18 2-fluoro-2-deoxy-D-glucose-Positron emission tomography/computed tomography (FDG-PET/CT) in the restaging of bladder cancer with other radiological methods and to determine its effect on the treatment management of patients with bladder cancer.
