Figure 5: Fluorine-18-fludeoxyglucose positron emission tomography demonstrating “muscle scan” in a hyperglycemic patient. Maximum intensity projection of an fluorine-18-fludeoxyglucose positron emission tomography in a 48-year-old male. As the patient's blood glucose was measured at 127 mg/dL before scanning, recent exercise or noncompliance with fasting state may have led to the diffuse muscle sequestration of the radiotracer, which limited detection of hypermetabolic lesions. The patient later returned for a repeat study that was diagnostic in quality
