Official Title

Impact and Utility of Positron Emission Tomography (PET) for the Assessment of Inflammatory Activity Arteritis Versus Clinical Score and Laboratory Values in Takayasu Arteritis: a Cohort Study

Brief Summary

      The purpose of this study is to demonstrate that [18F]FDG PET is a a better method than
      clinical and laboratory values for the identification and assessment of inflammatory activity
      in patients with Takayasu Arteritis (TA), allowing long-term follow-up with a precise
      evaluation of response to therapy.

Detailed Description

      Inflammatory activity and fibrosis are the main causes of morbidity and mortality in patients
      with Takayasu arteritis. The investigators objective is to determine the utility of using
      18F-FDG PET in the basal evaluation and follow-up of patients and compare the results with
      Dabague's clinical score.
