Brown fat uptake of 2-deoxy-2-[F-18]fluoro-d-glucose (FDG) on a positron emission tomography (PET) scan limits the ability to assess for cancer. Drugs such as benzodiazepine, propranolol, and reserpine have been proposed to reduce this uptake, but the studies have been either small clinical or preclinical trials. As an alternative, we evaluated the effect of controlling the patient’s environmental temperature on brown fat uptake of FDG. From January 1, 2002 to November 30, 2004, patients were… CONTINUE READING
