More Evidence Needed Before Changing Neuroblastoma Imaging

Comparing 123I-MIBG and 18F-FDG PET for neuroblastoma staging in 60 patients. 18F-FDG better for early stage, 123I-MIBG better for late. But small samples mean more robust data needed before eliminating either test. For now, both modalities provide value.
