Dual-phase FDG-PET imaging shows suspected malignancy that histological examination later confirmed as sclerosing mediastinitis: report of a case.

Sclerosing mediastinitis is a rare, benign disorder that is often indistinguishable from malignancy by conventional imaging techniques. The value of fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography (FDG-PET) imaging in the diagnosis of this disorder has not been elucidated. Recently, a few studies have reported the use of dual-phase FDG-PET imaging in the… (More)
