Description:
The purpose of this research study is to see if positron emission tomography (PET imaging) with 18Ffluorodeoxyglucose (FDG – a radioactive form of sugar) can help doctors determine which patients will respond best to traditional treatment versus those that need more aggressive therapy to prevent their
disease from coming back. Previous research studies here at Washington University have shown that FDG-PET imaging can predict whether or not cancer has spread outside the cervix as well as predicting disease returning after finishing chemoradiation.
