      Abstract: Purpose Nitroglycerin (NTG) is a vasodilating drug, which increases tumor blood flow and consequently decreases hypoxia. Therefore, changes in [18F] fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography ([18F]FDG PET) uptake pattern may occur. In this analysis, we investigated the feasibility of [18F]FDG PET for response assessment to paclitaxel-carboplatin-bevacizumab (PCB) treatment with and without NTG patches. And we compared the [18F]FDG PET response assessment to RECIST response assessment and survival. Methods A total of 223 stage IV non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients were included in a phase II study (NCT01171170) randomizing between PCB treatment with or without NTG patches. For 60 participating patients, a baseline and a second [18F]FDG PET/computed tomography (CT) scan, performed between day 22 and 24 after the start of treatment, were available. Tumor response was defined as a 30 % decrease in CT and PET parameters, and was compared to RECIST response at week 6. The predictive value of these assessments for progression free survival (PFS) and overall survival (OS) was assessed with and without NTG. Results A 30 % decrease in SUVpeak assessment identified more patients as responders compared to a 30 % decrease in CT diameter assessment (73 % vs. 18 %), however, this was not correlated to OS (SUVpeak30 p = 0.833; CTdiameter30 p = 0.557). Changes in PET parameters between the baseline and the second scan were not significantly different for the NTG group compared to the control group (p value range 0.159–0.634). The CT-based (part of the [18F]FDG PET/CT) parameters showed a significant difference between the baseline and the second scan for the NTG group compared to the control group (CT diameter decrease of 7 ± 23 % vs. 19 ± 14 %, p = 0.016, respectively). Conclusions The decrease in tumoral FDG uptake in advanced NSCLC patients treated with chemotherapy with and without NTG did not differ between both treatment arms. Early PET-based response assessment showed more tumor responders than CT-based response assessment (part of the [18F]FDG PET/CT); this was not correlated to survival. This might be due to timing of the [18F]FDG PET shortly after the bevacizumab infusion.

      Abstract: Purpose To determine whether higher pre-treatment metabolic tumor volume (tMTV-pre) is associated with worse overall survival (OS) in patients with inoperable NSCLC treated with definitive chemoradiation (CRT). Methods This is a secondary analysis of the American College of Radiology Imaging Network (ACRIN) 6668/Radiation Therapy Oncology Group 0235 trial. Pre-treatment PET scans were performed on ACRIN-qualified scanners. Computer-aided MTV measurement was performed using RT_Image. Kaplan–Meier curves and Cox proportional hazards regression models were used to assess the association between tMTV and OS. Results Of the 250 patients enrolled on the study, 230 were evaluable for tMTV-pre. Patients with MTV-pre >32 mL (median value) vs. ≤32 mL had worse median OS (14.8 vs. 29.7 months, p < 0.001). As a continuous variable, higher tMTV-pre (per 10-mL increase) remained associated with worse OS (HR = 1.03, p < 0.001) after controlling for other variables. A significant interaction between radiation dose and tMTV-pre occurred for OS (p = 0.002), demonstrating that the negative prognostic impact of tMTV-pre decreased as radiotherapy dose increased. Among patients with tMTV-pre ≤32 mL, there was no difference in survival according to radiotherapy dose delivered (p = 0.694). However, median OS was inferior in patients with tMTV-pre >32 mL who received ≤60 Gy compared with those who received 61–69 Gy or ≥70 Gy (p = 0.001). Conclusions Higher tMTV-pre is associated with significantly worse OS in inoperable stage III NSCLC treated with definitive CRT. Our findings suggest that for patients with large tMTV-pre, achieving a therapeutic radiation dose may help maximize OS. Prospective studies are needed to confirm this finding.

      Abstract: Purpose 18F-FDG PET/CT should be performed before a diagnostic biopsy site is chosen in patients with a high clinical suspicion of aggressive, advanced tumour. The aim of this study was to evaluate the safety and efficacy of 18F-FDG PET/CT in guiding biopsy of bone metastases in patients with advanced lung cancer. Methods PET/CT-guided percutaneous core biopsies were performed in 51 consecutive patients with suspected lung cancer and 18F-FDG-avid bone lesions after whole-body 18F-FDG PET/CT scans. Generally, one tissue sample was obtained from each patient. The final diagnoses were established on the basis of the histology results. The histopathological and molecular testing results were systematically evaluated. Results A total of 53 samples were obtained for histological examination or molecular testing as a second biopsy was required in two patients in whom the pathological diagnosis was unclear following the first biopsy. The pathological diagnosis and lung cancer classification were confirmed in 48 patients. The epidermal growth factor receptor mutation status was determined in 23 biopsies, and the mutation rate was 30.4 % (7/23). The anaplastic lymphoma kinase mutation status was determined in 19 biopsies, and the mutation rate was 31.6 % (6/19). Two of the 51 biopsies were positive for non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma and one was positive for metastatic renal cell carcinoma. The first-time diagnostic success rate of biopsy was 96.1 % (49/51) and the overall diagnostic success rate and sensitivity were 100 %. All 51 patients were eventually confirmed as having stage IV disease. No serious complications were encountered and the average biopsy time was 30 min. Conclusion PET/CT-guided percutaneous biopsy of 18F-FDG-avid bone metastases is an effective and safe method that yields a high diagnostic success rate in the evaluation of hypermetabolic bone lesions in patients with suspected advanced lung cancer.

      Abstract: Purpose The successful labelling of bisphosphonates (BP) with 68Ga using macrocyclic chelators such as the based triazacyclononane (NO2AP) is a step forward in the in-house availability of a novel bone-seeking PET radiopharmaceutical with dual advantage of PET/CT imaging and generator production. In this study, we compared the novel generator-based skeletal radiotracer 68Ga-1,4,7-triazacyclonone-1,4-diacetic acid (68Ga-NO2AP-BP) with sodium fluoride (18F-NaF) for the detection of skeletal metastases in breast cancer patients. In addition, dosimetric analysis of 68Ga-NO2AP-BP was performed in a subset of patients. Methods This was a prospective study of histopathologically proven cases of breast cancer patients who were referred for bone scintigraphy and underwent positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) with 18F-NaF and 68Ga-NO2AP-BP within a week in random order. The scans of each patient were compared both qualitatively for image quality and quantitatively for number of lesions and SUVmax of lesions. Dosimetric analysis was performed in five patients. Their PET/CT scans were acquired at multiple time points and urine and blood samples were collected. Dosimetric calculations were performed using OLINDA/EXM 1.1 software. Statistical analysis was done using Stata 13 (StataCorp) software package. An agreement analysis regarding number of lesions detected with the two skeletal radiotracers was carried out. Results The image quality of 68Ga-NO2AP-BP PET/CT scans were comparable to that of 18F-NaF. There was no statistically significant difference in the SUVmax of lesions, normal bone and lesion to background ratio between the two skeletal radiotracers. There was good agreement in the number of lesions detected by both skeletal radiotracers. The mean whole body effective dose for 68Ga-NO2AP-BP was 0.00583 mSv/MBq and the effective dose equivalent was 0.0086 mSv/MBq. Conclusion The excellent lesion detection agreement between 68Ga-NO2AP-BP and 18F-NaF favours the former as an alternative for skeletal scintigraphy in centres without an on-site cyclotron. The favourable dosimetric results and its potential to be used as a theranostic agent makes it an important generator-based skeletal radiotracer.

  • Prognostic impact of tumour burden assessed by metabolic tumour volume on
           FDG PET/CT in anal canal cancer
    • Authors: Mathieu Gauthé; Marion Richard-Molard; Juliette Fayard; Jean-Louis Alberini; Wulfran Cacheux; Astrid Lièvre
      Pages: 63 - 70
      Abstract: Purpose The aim of this study was to confirm the prognostic value of metabolic tumour volume (MTV) at the primary site on initial work-up FDG PET/CT in patients with squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) of the anal canal. Methods Patients with a recent diagnosis of SCC of the anal canal without metastases undergoing PET/CT for initial work-up and treated with (chemo)radiotherapy were retrospectively reviewed. Computer-aided MTV and SUVmax were determined. Survival rates were estimated using the Kaplan-Meier method. Cox regression analysis was used to evaluate prognostic variables of progression-free survival and overall survival (OS). Results The study group comprised 75 patients who had an initial work-up PET/CT. Five patients (6.7 %) had stage I disease, 22 (29.3 %) stage II disease, 20 (26.7 %) stage IIIA disease, and 28 (37.3 %) stage IIIB disease. Median follow-up was 51 months (range 10 – 117 months). Global 4-year OS was 82.7 %, ranging from 100 % in patients with stage I disease to 75 % in patients with stage IIIB disease. MTV at the primary site was significantly and independently correlated with OS (p < 0.05), as patients with MTV less than 7 cm3 had a better prognosis. SUVmax was not correlated with survival parameters. Metabolic involvement of the inguinal lymph nodes was also correlated with a poor outcome in the univariate analysis (p < 0.05). Conclusion MTV at the primary site is a prognostic biomarker in anal canal cancer. Hypermetabolic inguinal lymph nodes also appear to be correlated with survival.

      Pages: 81 - 91
      Abstract: Purpose The purpose of this study was to evaluate the efficacy and safety of a novel theranostic agent, 177Lu-DKFZ-PSMA-617 therapy in metastatic castration resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC). Methods Thirty-one mCRPC patients with progressive disease despite second-line hormonal therapy and/or docetaxel chemotherapy were recruited for the study. All patients underwent diagnostic68Ga-PSMA-HBED-CCPET/CT, prior to inclusion for therapy. Included patients then underwent quarterly 177Lu-DKFZ-PSMA-617 therapy. Hematological, kidney function, liver function tests, and serum PSA levels were recorded before and after therapy at 2 weeks, 4 weeks, and 3 month intervals. Biochemical response was assessed with trend in serum PSA levels. Metabolic response was assessed by PERCIST 1 criteria. Clinical response was assessed by visual analogue score (VASmax) analgesic score (AS), Karanofsky performance status (KPS), and ttoxicity and response criteria of the Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) criteria. Results The mean age of patients was 65.93 ± 9.77 years (range: 38–81 years). The mean activity administered in the 31 patients was 5069 ± 1845 MBq ranging from one to four cycles. There was a decline in the mean serum PSA levels from the baseline (baseline: 275 ng/mL, post 1st cycle therapy: 141.75 ng/mL). Based on biochemical response criteria 2/31, 20/31, 3/31, and 6/31 had complete response (CR), partial response(PR), stable disease (SD), and progressive disease (PD), respectively. Metabolic response revealed 2/6 patients with CR, and the remaining 3/6 patients with PR and 1/6 patients with SD. The mean VASmax score decreased from 7.5 to 3. The mean analgesic score decreased from 2.5 to 1.8 after therapy. The mean KPS score improved from 50.32 to 65.42 after therapies. The mean ECOG performance status improved from 2.54 to 1.78 after therapy. Two patients experienced grade I and grade II hemoglobin toxicity each. None of the patients experienced nephrotoxicity or hepatotoxicity. Conclusion 177Lu-DKFZ-PSMA-617 radionuclide therapy is a safe and effective approach in the treatment of mCRPC patients.

  • Comparison of 68 Ga-labelled PSMA-11 and 11 C-choline in the detection of
           prostate cancer metastases by PET/CT
    • Authors: Johannes Schwenck; Hansjoerg Rempp; Gerald Reischl; Stephan Kruck; Arnulf Stenzl; Konstantin Nikolaou; Christina Pfannenberg; Christian la Fougère
      Pages: 92 - 101
      Abstract: Purpose Prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA) is expressed ubiquitously on the membrane of most prostate tumors and its metastasis. While PET/CT using 11C-choline was considered as the gold standard in the staging of prostate cancer, PET with radiolabelled PSMA ligands was introduced into the clinic in recent years. Our aim was to compare the PSMA ligand 68Ga-PSMA-11 with 11C-choline in patients with primary and recurrent prostate cancer. Methods 123 patients underwent a whole-body PET/CT examination using 68Ga-PSMA-11 and 11C-choline. Suspicious lesions were evaluated visually and semiquantitatively (SUVavg). Out of these, 103 suffered from a confirmed biochemical relapse after prostatectomy and/or radiotherapy (mean PSA level of 4.5 ng/ml), while 20 patients underwent primary staging. Results In 67 patients with biochemical relapse, we detected 458 lymph nodes suspicious for metastasis. PET using 68Ga-PSMA-11 showed a significantly higher uptake and detection rate than 11C-choline PET. Also 68Ga-PSMA-11 PET identified significantly more patients with suspicious lymph nodes as well as affected lymph nodes regions especially at low PSA levels. Bone lesions suspicious for prostate cancer metastasis were revealed in 36 patients’ biochemical relapse. Significantly more bone lesions were detected by 68Ga-PSMA-11, but only 3 patients had only PSMA-positive bone lesions. Nevertheless, we detected also 29 suspicious lymph nodes and 8 bone lesions, which were only positive as per 11C-choline PET. These findings led to crucial differences in the TNM classification and the identification of oligometastatic patients. In the patients who underwent initial staging, all primary tumors showed uptake of both tracers. Although significantly more suspicious lymph nodes and bone lesions were identified, only 2 patients presented with bone lesions only detected by 68Ga-PSMA-11 PET. Conclusion Thus, PET using 68Ga-PSMA-11 showed a higher detection rate than 11C-choline PET for lymph nodes as well as bone lesions. However, we found lymph nodes and bone lesions which were not concordant applying both tracers.

      Pages: 102 - 107
      Abstract: Purpose To evaluate the diagnostic potential of whole-body PET/CT using a 68Ga-labelled PSMA ligand in renal cell carcinoma (RCC). Methods Six patients with histopathologically proven RCC underwent 68Ga-PSMA PET/CT. Each PET/CT scan was evaluated in relation to lesion count, location and dignity. SUVmax was measured in primary tumours and PET-positive metastases. Tumour-to-background SUVmax ratios (TBRSUVmax) were calculated for primary RCCs in relation to the surrounding normal renal parenchyma. Metastasis-to-background SUVmax ratios (MBRSUVmax) were calculated for PET-positive metastases in relation to gluteal muscle. Results Five primary RCCs and 16 metastases were evaluated. The mean SUVmax of the primary RCCs was 9.9 ± 9.2 (range 1.7 – 27.2). Due to high uptake in the surrounding renal parenchyma, the mean TBRSUVmax of the primary RCCs was only 0.2 ± 0.3 (range 0.02 – 0.7). Eight metastases showed focal 68Ga-PSMA uptake (SUVmax 9.9 ± 8.3, range 3.4 – 25.6). The mean MBRSUVmax of these PET-positive metastases was 11.7 ± 0.2 (range 4.4 – 28.1). All PET-negative metastases were subcentimetre lung metastases. Conclusion 68Ga-PSMA PET/CT appears to be a promising method for detecting RCC metastases. However, no additional diagnostic value in assessing the primary tumour was found.

  • Metabolic and morphological measurements of subcutaneous and visceral fat
           and their relationship with disease stage and overall survival in newly
           diagnosed pancreatic adenocarcinoma
    • Authors: Christophe Van de Wiele; Mathias Van Vlaenderen; Ludovic D’Hulst; Anne Delcourt; Dominique Copin; Bart De Spiegeleer; Alex Maes
      Pages: 110 - 116
      Abstract: Purpose The relationship between tumor metabolism and stage, subcutaneous and visceral fat thickness, and their glucose metabolism and overall survival in patients recently diagnosed with pancreatic carcinoma was assessed. Methods Thirty-eight consecutive patients were studied. Subcutaneous fat thickness (SFT), visceral fat thickness (VFT), and their corresponding FDG SUVmean, as well as SUVmean and SUVmax values of the primary tumor (PT) were derived from FDG-PET CT imaging. Results obtained as well as clinical variables obtained, including gender and BMI, were related to patient outcome. Median follow-up was 382 days (range: 36–917 days). Results Median age was 66 years (13 women). Mean BMI was 24.6 (SD: 4.5). Lymph node (LN) involvement was diagnosed in 17 patients and 14 patients presented with distant metastases. Mean SUV max and SUVmean values of the PT were 9.0 (SD 5.9) and 4.2 (SD 2.1). Mean values of SFT and VFT were, respectively, 11.9 mm (range 1–31.7 mm) and 11.5 mm (range 0–49.8 mm). The corresponding SUVmean values were 0.4 (range 0–1.0) and 0.6 (range 0.0–1.6). SUVmean values of SFT proved significantly lower in LNpositive versus LNnegative patients (p = 0.021), in patients with and without metastatic disease (p = 0.017) and in stage III+IV patients versus stage I+II patients (p = 0.03). An inverse logarithmic relationship was found between SUVmean values of subcutaneous fat and SUVmean values of the PT (p = 0.02). Only disease stage dichotomized according to stage I+IIA versus stage IIB+III+IV was predictive of overall survival (p = 0.05). Conclusion Glucose metabolism of subcutaneous fat in de novo diagnosed pancreas carcinoma patients presenting with lymph node involvement and metastatic disease is significantly reduced and inversely correlated to the primary tumor metabolism. Of the various fat-related variables studied, none proved significantly related to outcome.
