Özet

Objective. 18F-fluorodeoxyglucosepositron emission tomography/computed tomography (18F-FDG PET/CT) scanning has been proposed as a new tool to assess disease activity in Takayasu arteritis (TA). We investigated whether 18F-FDG PET/CT findings were consistent with current clinical disease status in patients with TA.
