Figure 4: Fluorine-18-fludeoxyglucose positron emission tomography demonstrating diffuse marrow uptake postchemotherapy. (a) Maximum intensity projection of an fluorine-18-fludeoxyglucose positron emission tomography in an elderly male with lung cancer shows a large lesion within the left lung as well as diffuse muscle uptake. Diffuse bone marrow uptake in the setting of marrow reconstitution following chemotherapy limits detection of bony lesions. (b) Five months later, repeat fluorine-18-fludeoxyglucose positron emission tomography redemonstrated the patient's lung mass, now with a new hypermetabolic lung nodule. The previously seen diffuse bone marrow uptake has normalized after recovery from chemotherapy
