Abstract

In August 2016, we celebrated the 40th anniversary of the introduction of FDG-PET imaging and its enormous impact on the day-to-day practice of medicine [1]. The concept of imaging with FDG was primarily based upon wellestablished and scientifically proven high cerebral glycolytic activity by various methodologies.
