PURPOSE To determine the clinical importance and malignant potential of unexpected abnormal foci of hypermetabolism at fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) positron emission tomography (PET) performed for evaluation of malignancy. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 1,750 FDG PET scans were obtained to evaluate a variety of known or suspected malignancies. Each scan was evaluated for abnormal unexpected hypermetabolism based on unusual location (ie, foci that did not conform to the usual distribution of… CONTINUE READING
