Figure 1: (a) Maximum intensity projection image of F18-fluoride bone positron emission tomography (PET) done 60 min after intra-venous injection of 340 mBq of 18F-sodium fluoride on a GE Discovery ST600 PET/computed tomography (CT) (Milwaukee, USA) demonstrate, metastatic foci in cervical and dorsal vertebrae. Tram-track appearance is seen in the femur on both sides is indicative of hypertrophic osteoarthropathy (curved arrow). Image also demonstrates increased fluoride uptake in the distal phalanges of both hands (arrows). (b) Clinical photograph showing finger clubbing. (c) Fused axial PET CT images showing increased fluoride uptake in the phalanges and uptake along the femur
