Three patients were examined using PET with L-methyl-11C-methionine (11C-methionine) and 2-18F-fluoro-2-deoxy-D-glucose (FDG) 20 to 32 days after the occurrence of nontumoral brain hematomas. PET revealed high uptake of 11C-methionine in the area surrounding the hematoma in all three patients. In two patients, discrete spots of moderate uptake of FDG were found at the periphery of a hypometabolic area. PET studies were repeated in two patients 76 and 103 days after the bleeding, respectively… CONTINUE READING
