Nodular fasciitis (NF) is a common benign soft tissue tumor. However, F-FDG PET/CT findings of NF are limited. Two cases of NF are described that mimic soft tissue metastasis on F-FDG PET/CT during surveillance. F-FDG PET/CT is well documented in the surveillance of malignancy and increasing worldwide. There are growing chances of encountering FDG-avid nonmalignant soft tissue lesion. Nodular fasciitis could be considered as possible diagnosis on F-FDG PET/CT if a solitary well- circumscribed… CONTINUE READING
