OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to determine whether use of a high-fat, very-low-carbohydrate protocol for preparing patients for PET decreases the frequency of (18)F-FDG uptake by hypermetabolic brown adipose tissue (BAT) on PET scans. MATERIALS AND METHODS In this HIPAA-compliant retrospective study, 741 FDG PET/CT scans obtained during the winter months (October 1-April 30) for patients who prepared with a high-fat, very-low-carbohydrate, protein-permitted protocol were compared… CONTINUE READING
