Unusual Intense Fluorodeoxyglucose Uptake in the Intercostal Muscles Due to Severe Shortness of Breath in a Patient with Heart Failure


We present a case of unusually intense Fluorodeoxyglucose uptake in the intercostal muscles during a Fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography (FDG-PET). We hypothesized that severe left ventricular failure causing the patient to be short of breath during the study in association with insulin injection as part of study protocol led to the intense… (More)
