Hypodense lesion on CT is consistent with fluid collection at surgery site. PET image shows circumferentially increased FDG uptake at seroma (arrows) 42 2 Normal Variants and Benign Findings Thymic Uptake a b c Fig. 27 A 20-year-old female with lymphoma underwent 18F-FDG PET/CT scan for recurrence detection. 8) at thymus is noted (arrow) (a–c). Increased thymic 18F-FDG uptake may represent normal physiologic uptake but may also indicate the presence of thymic hyperplasia, lymphomatous infiltration, primary thymic neoplasm, or metastatic disease.
18 Focal 18F-FDG uptake at left lobe of thyroid gland in a thyroid nodule found incidentally. Lesion turned out to be benign colloid nodule. Focal high uptake of 18F-FDG in the thyroid as an incidental finding occurs in approximately 1 % of the patients undergoing PET/ CT examination. 1 Head and Neck 37 Chronic Thyroiditis Fig. 19 Axial PET and CT images show diffuse intense FDG uptake at both thyroid lobes being more prominent at right. Chronic thyroiditis may cause intense and FDG uptake, unlike the focal uptake of nodules Fig.
23 Usually homogenous activity is seen in the left ventricle (a, b). In fed state, myocardium use glucose as energy source so increased FDG uptake is seen, whereas less FDG uptake is seen in long fasting state since 1 Physiologic Distribution of 18F-FDG b reviewing the MIP images, otherwise physiologic muscle uptake can be misinterpreted as pathological b myocardium uses fatty acid as energy source instead of glucose. Hypermetabolic focus noted in left ventricle belongs to papillary muscle uptake 1 Physiologic Distribution of 18F-FDG Fig.
