Editor's favorite: "Crohn Disease: FDG PET/CT Before and After Initial Dose of AntiYTumor NecrosisFactor Therapy to Predict Long-term Response".  Epelboym and colleagues at Brigham and Women's Hospital present a prospective pilot study of 8 patients with Chrohn Disease treated with anti-tumor necrosis factor and sequentially imaging with FDG PET/CT. Brigham and Women's Hospital.  Of 8 patients, 7 showed FDG activity decline at 2 weeks, 5 of whom achieved a clinical response and steroid-free remission at 8, 26, and 52 weeks. The remaining 2 patients with FDG activity decline did not achieve a clinical response or steroid-free remission at these time points, but there were reductions in CRP. This may be yet another application of FDG PET/CT in inflammatory conditions.​
