Core Tip Positron emission tomography-computed tomography (PET-CT) is integral to the staging of esophageal cancer. It is unclear whether the value of PET-CT extends beyond the identification of metastatic disease. The influence of PET-CT maximum standardized uptake value (SUVmax) on prognosis was determined for 271 patients. Although SUVmax was closely linked to disease stage, it did not exert an independent effect and was not a useful prognostic marker.
