There is poor uptake of FDG
in bronchoalveolar carcinoma, some adenocarcinomas and well-differentiated neuro-endocrine tumours.
Therefore, in cases where FDG
avidity was seen in viscera like gut or breast, an advanced stage had already been identified by conventional imaging method or a bone marrow biopsy report.
A cell-culture reactor for the on-line evaluation of radiopharmaceuticals: evaluation of the lumped constant of FDG
in human glioma cells," Journal of Nuclear Medicine, vol.
4) Visualization of uptake in the cervical cords is common, especially if the child talks or cries after FDG

One hour after F-18 FDG
injection, a CT scan without contrast agent was performed, covering the area from the vertex to the proximal thigh, and the images were used for attenuation correction and image fusion.
Pitfalls in oncologic diagnosis with FDG
PET imaging: physiologic and benign variants.
The uptake of FDG
in involved joints was assessed qualitatively (visual evaluation) by a board-certified nuclear medicine physician as well as semi-quantitatively by calculating the standardized uptake value (SUV) in manual regions of interest (ROIs) placed by the Nuclear Medicine Physician.
All PET/CT images were interpreted visually by evaluating any abnormal FDG
uptake on the PET images.
PET/CT is recommended in select cases for distinguishing cerebral tumour from atypical infection in HIV-positive (HIV+) patients when anatomical imaging is inconclusive.
Due to poor vascular access, the patient's port was utilized to administer the FDG
dose of 11.
Delivery of the radiopharmaceutical 18F FDG
