Figure 1: Maximum intensity projection positron emission tomography (PET) image showing multiple focal areas of 18F-Fluorodeoxyglucose (18F-FDG) uptake in the head and neck, thorax, abdomen and pelvis (a). Contrast enhanced PET/computed tomography image of the thorax showed a nodular 18F-FDG avid lesion (SUVmax-5.6) in left lung upper lobe, measuring 1.7 cm × 1.5 cm and showing pleural tagging (b, arrow), along with multiple 18F-FDG avid mediastinal nodes (b, broken arrows). Prostate gland was normal in size with no definite focal 18F-FDG uptake or space occupying lesion (c, arrowhead). Also noted was an enhancing space occupying lesion (d, e, bold arrow) measuring 1.3 cm × 0.8 cm in size in left seminal vesicle showing increased 18F-FDG uptake (SUVmax-5.1). Also noted were multiple 18F-FDG avid skeletal lesions (c-e, broken arrows)
