BACKGROUND (18)F-fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) PET plays an important role in the detection of cardiac involvement sarcoidosis (CS). However, diffuse left ventricle (LV) wall uptake sometimes makes it difficult to distinguish between positive uptake and physiological uptake. The aims of this study were to evaluate the effects of 18-h fasting with low-carbohydrate diet (LCD) vs a minimum of 6-h fasting preparations on diffuse LV FDG uptake and free fatty acid (FFA) levels in patients with suspected… CONTINUE READING
