FDG-PET shows potential in diagnosing prosthetic valve endocarditis

ASNC SmartBrief | Nov 24, 2014

FDG-PET showed 93% sensitivity and 94% predictive value compared with 63% sensitivity of leukocyte scintigraphy in detecting infected prosthetic heart valves, according to a study in an imaging journal that involved 39 patients with suspected infective endocarditis and inconclusive echocardiography results. Although FDG-PET showed high sensitivity, leukocyte scintigraphy had 100% specificity, which suggests it could still be used to verify unclear FDG-PET scans and for other kinds of inflammation.
