Characterization of physiologic 18F-FDG uptake with PET-CT in dogs.


We evaluated the whole body distribution of 2-deoxy-2-[18F]fluoro-D-glucose (18F-FDG) in seven beagle dogs using positron emission tomography/computed tomography. The mean and maximum standard uptake values (SUV) for various tissues were computed. The SUV of the aortic blood pool was 0.65 +/- 0.19. Moderate uptake was present in brain (3.40 +/- 1.01).
