Uptake of 18FDG by a Hepatic Adenoma on Positron Emission Tomography


Fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography ((18)FDG-PET) is currently the best noninvasive test to confirm hepatic metastases when diagnostic uncertainty exists after initial imaging with first-line modalities. However, we report the second case of "false-positive" uptake of (18)FDG on PET scanning from a histopathologically confirmed hepatic adenoma.
