A 65-year-old patient with acute lymphoblastic leukemia presented for an 18fluoro-2-deoxy-d-glucose positron emission tomography computed tomography (18FDG PET) after several courses of chemotherapy for metastatic evaluation. Unexpectedly, on 18FDG PET scan, no discernible uptake was observed in the visceral organs, but instead, the skeleton/bone marrow showed homogenously intense metabolic activity. The distribution of 18FDG observed on the scan was remarkably similar to that on the NaF PET scan, indicating a superscan appearance.
