A routine feature of positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) imaging is whole-body acquisition that results in many unexpected findings identified outside of the primary region of abnormality. Furthermore, (18)F-fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) is a marker of glycolysis and does not specifically accumulate in malignancy. Understanding the physiology and pathophysiology of normal FDG distribution and common incidental findings is therefore essential to the physician interpreting whole… CONTINUE READING
