  • PET/CT Imaging of Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumor With Calcified Peritoneal Implants After Imatinib Therapy CLINICAL NUCLEAR MEDICINE Eslamy, H. K., Quon, A. 2008; 33 (12): 864-865


    Calcified tumor mass is an unusual feature of gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST) at initial presentation. However, it may develop after imatinib therapy and be erroneously attributed to a second primary malignancy. A 56-year-old woman with a 4.5-year history of metastatic GIST presented to our institution for PET/CT imaging at baseline and at 3 and 15 months after imatinib therapy. Serial PET/CT images demonstrated increasing calcification in peritoneal implants on CT and increasing FDG activity.
