This article will focus primarily on body oncology diagnosis, staging and therapy monitoring using fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) PET imaging. Common pitfalls and artifacts in body FDG imaging will be covered. Examples of diagnosis, staging and therapy monitoring of brain tumor, colorectal cancer, lymphoma and melanoma will be given. Importance of correlation with anatomic imaging and practical use of FDG imaging in patient management will be stressed.
