Figure 2: (a) Maximal intensity projection image of the patient from base of skull to mid-thigh showing focal areas of hypermetabolism throughout the body corresponding to multiple metastatic skeletal lesions. Physiological uptake noted in heart, liver, bowel, kidneys, and urinary bladder, (b) Sagittal positron emission tomography and fused PET-computed tomography images reveal abnormal fluoro-2-deoxy-d-glucose uptake in spinal column corresponding to lytic lesions on CT, (c) Metabolically active well-defined lobulated soft tissue lesion in basisphenoid and sella turcica region, extending into the extraaxial space of right middle cranial fossa and indenting the medial temporal lobe causing destruction of the sella turcica, sphenoid sinus, dorsal sella, and clivus, (d) Hypermetabolic lytic intradiploic lesions noted in left anterior frontal, high frontal, and parietal region
