PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to assess the significance of incidental nasopharyngeal uptake on 18F-FDG PET/CT and to identify image patterns useful in the differentiation between benign or physiologic activity and nasopharyngeal carcinoma. METHODS We retrospectively reviewed medical records of patients with nasopharyngeal uptakes on 18F-FDG PET/CT scans taken between January 2010 and July 2011.
