    OBJECTIVE. This article outlines the role of FDG PET/CT in patients with cervical carcino­ma for evaluating tumor extent, assessing treatment response, and detecting disease recurrence.

    CONCLUSION. There is increasing evidence that FDG PET/CT has a role in the pri­mary evaluation of cervical carcinoma—in particular, for evaluating lymph node status and distant metastatic disease. PET/CT is also helpful to determine prognosis, assess treatment response, and evaluate disease recurrence.
