Question


  1. What is the diagnostic test accuracy of PET-CT in patients with medically refractory epileptic seizures, multiple sclerosis, or dementia?

  2. What is the clinical utility of PET-CT in patients with medically refractory epileptic seizures, multiple sclerosis, or dementia?

  3. What is the cost-effectiveness of PET-CT in patients with medically refractory epileptic seizures, multiple sclerosis, or dementia?

  4. What are the evidence-based guidelines regarding the use of PET-CT in patients with medically refractory epileptic seizures, multiple sclerosis, or dementia?


Key Message

One non-randomized study was identified regarding positron emission tomographycomputed tomography (PET-CT) in patients with dementia. In addition, one evidence-based guideline was identified regarding the use of PET-CT in patients with dementia.
