To confirm the diagnostic effectiveness of 18F-Fluorodeoxyglucose(FDG) as compared to the gold standard of histopathological diagnosis. [ Time Frame: Three years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
The primary outcomes of sensitivity and accuracy of 18F-Fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) Positron Emission Tomography (PET) studies will be obtained by comparing results of the PET scan with the gold standard of histopathological diagnosis when those results are available. Comparison to correlative imaging follow-up, and assessment of efficacy based on feedback from referring physicians will be used in the absence of pathologic data.

18F-Fluorodeoxyglucose Positron Emission Tomography in Oncology and Neurology
18F-Fluorodeoxyglucose Positron Emission Tomography in Oncology and Neurology

This clinical trial is being conducted to study the use of a radioactive glucose tracer as an imaging test [Positron Emission Tomography (PET)scan] in adults who have or are suspected of having cancer and in another group of adults to assess for neurologic conditions.

Interventional
Phase 3
Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Diagnostic
Tumors
Radiation: [18F]-Fluorodeoxyglucose
With each Positron Emission Tomography/Computed Tomography (PET/CT)scan an intravenous administration of radioactive glucose (FDG)is given. This is a weight dependent dosage.
Other Name: FDG (18F-Fluorodeoxyglucose)
[18F]-Fluorodeoxyglucose
Scanning Procedure: Non-diagnostic Computed Tomography (CT) scan followed by a Diagnostic Positron Emission Tomography (PET) scan.
Intervention: Radiation: [18F]-Fluorodeoxyglucose
