Cervical cancer is the second most common gynecological cancer worldwide. In locally advanced cervical cancer, 18F-FDG PET/CT has become important in the initial staging, particularly in the detection of nodal and distant metastasis, aspects with treatment implications and prognostic value.

The aims of this study were to review the role of 18F-FDG PET/CT in uterine cervical cancer, according to the guidelines of the main scientific institutions (FIGO, NCCN, SEGO, SEOM, ESGO, and ESMO) and its diagnostic accuracy compared to conventional radiological techniques, as well as to review the acquisition protocol and its utility in radiotherapy planning, response assessment and detection of recurrence.
