INTRODUCTION To investigate variability and reproducibility of hepatic [(18)F]-2-fluoro-2-deoxy-D-glucose (FDG) uptake in healthy individuals. METHODS Static images were obtained 70 min after the injection of 160 MBq FDG in six healthy subjects at two occasions with 13 days' interval. FDG uptake was adjusted for tissue-to-blood background ratio (T/B), or measured as standardized uptake value (SUV). Small regions of interest (ROIs) of 10 cm(3) in two different hepatic regions were analysed as… CONTINUE READING
