Abstract

Cutaneous angiosarcoma (CAS) is a rare soft tissue sarcoma with rapid growth and poor prognosis. We retrospectively analyzed the data of 18 patients with CAS who underwent 18F-Fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography (FDG PET/CT) at the initial visit to the Department of Dermatology, Okayama University Hospital from September 2006 to March 2016. In the univariate survival analysis, patients with high standardized uptake values (SUVmax) of the primary tumor showed significantly poorer prognosis than those with low SUVmax. Early assessment of prognosis using PET/CT may predict patient survival and is useful in the selection of therapeutic strategies.
