UNLABELLED Many patients referred for PET suffer from anxiety, possibly affecting the workflow and patient experience. In addition, patient anxiety may affect image quality through uptake of (18)F-FDG in muscles or brown adipose tissue (BAT).This study investigated the effects of a nonpharmacologic intervention-the use of audiovisual imagery in the PET uptake room-on patient anxiety and false-positive uptake of (18)F-FDG (in muscles and BAT). METHODS A 2-stage study was conducted on 101… CONTINUE READING
