Riassunto analitico
[18F]FDG-PET/CT has been recently introduced in the diagnostic algorithm for the diagnosis of infective endocarditis (IE). [18F]FDG PET/CT positivity at the valve site, which is a major criteria of the 2015 ESC criteria, is generally characterized by visual analysis. The advantage of semiquantitative assessment is still matter of discussion. In this study we aim to apply advanced texture features analysis, which application has been mainly focused on cancer imaging, to IE.
