Positron Emission Tomography with Computed Tomography (PET/CT) is a nuclear medication imaging modality utilizing positron-emitting radiotracers and a mixed puppy and CT scanner so one can realize and localize excessive radiotracer sign abnormalities. even supposing puppy has developed right into a diagnostic modality of leading significance in oncology (with the radiotracer (F18-FDG) it used to be initially expected to picture and diagnose ailments of the mind and the center. Lack or constrained adventure in puppy can result in an inaccurate interpretation of the findings during this delicate imaging modality. The life of varied infrequent cancers has led to scanty if now not an absence of data in regards to the usefulness of puppy in those attention-grabbing albeit unusual maladies. the writer, drawing from greater than ten years of expertise because the chairman/director of the one puppy middle within the Philippines, goals to give the main attention-grabbing situations he has encountered that may be academic to these starting their perform or perhaps beneficial to veterans of the sector whose scope of perform has been constrained to the commonest and reimbursable symptoms of an FDG-PET scan.

FDG-PET Scan shows a hypermetabolic lesion in the T11 vertebra corresponding to the lesion seen in the recent MRI (SUV = 17; Fig. The vertebral lesion is biopsied and tuberculous infection is reported. 1 Teaching Point Tuberculous lesions do not behave in any characteristic manner and shows variable FDG uptake depending on the degree of inflammatory activity and thus they can mimic other pathologies like neoplasm and non-tuberculous causes of infection [1, 2]. When a patient with no prior malignancy is referred for a PET scan, the search is usually for a cancerous focus that may necessitate more invasive work-up should the PET scan show a positive result.
