Figure 3: Fluorine-18-fludeoxyglucose positron emission tomography hepatic superscan. Maximum intensity projection of an fluorine-18-fludeoxyglucose positron emission tomography in a middle-aged man with a history of sigmoid adenocarcinoma demonstrating hepatic superscan. There are diffuse hypermetabolic lesions throughout the entire enlarged liver. Hypermetabolic mesenteric and retroperitoneal lymph nodes are also seen along with a hypermetabolic lesion in the region of the sigmoid colon. The avidity of the liver lesions is notably more intense than that seen in the brain
